Title: Jacob Organ Fundraisers (GA_Dave's grandson)
Post by: GA_Dave on August 29, 2017, 09:49:19 PM
My 4 year old grandson was born with interstitial lung disease (oxygen does not transfer from his lungs to his bloodstream as it should).  He is being treated by a leading Pulmonary Specialist located in Denver, CO.  His parents will be taking him to see this Doctor in October, a trip which will be quite expensive, above and beyond what insurance will cover.  Several fundraising efforts are underway, both locally and nationwide:

The first is a T-shirt sale, with the proceeds going directly toward the expenses of this trip.  All needed info is on this website -

We have also established a Go Fund Me page to raise money for this trip -

Additional local efforts include fundraisers at the places of employment of my son and daughter-in-law, where a percentage of sales on a specified day will go toward this trip.  Any and all contributions and participation in these fundraising efforts will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

I would like to thank those of you who have participated so far.  We still have a long way to go to reach Jacob's goal.  Each contribution is greatly appreciated, regardless of how large or small.  Every dollar helps!

I donated and shared it on Facebook, I don't have a lot of friends there, but hopefully this will get some traction. I at least asked people to share it if they can't donate.
