Gerry Gillespie Gerry's World

First post: Nov 26, 2016 Latest post: Dec 16, 2016
Welcome to this strange world that has revealed itself as of October 16, 2016, with neither trumpets nor gentle whispers.  No, this world suddenly enveloped every bit of space and breath of air, instantly becoming, "Gerry's World."  You will be able to find a link to the Facebook page which was earlier created and follow the preceding days of discovery.  Now we fast-forward to this day.  November 26, 2016.  Gerry's liver has compromised his kidneys considerably.  His liver is severely damaged.  He needs a transplant...NOW.   We have consulted with the hepatologists and nephrologists, as well as the critical care team.  Time is of the essence.  He does not have health insurance and does not qualify for Affordable Care.  He will be self-pay, which means he has to raise his own funds.  In a SHORT time.  He will require $20K down payment to begin the process and a remaining $288,400  prior to the procedure.  He will also require $3K/month medications for his lifetime.  The first goal is no later than by the end of the year, but the sooner the better .  The second goal will need to come quite quickly on its heels. THIS JUST IN AS AN EDIT: Gerry is approved by the transplant team and immediately ready-NO WAITING; he simply needs the financing!!!!
