 Colin 1

Don & Ashley are teaming up with the Children’s Organ Transplant Association to assist Colin Wilson of Benson with his needs for a double lung transplant.

Colin, now 22, was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Doctors at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill have recommended a life-saving double lung transplant for Colin. The goal is to raise $40,000 to assist Colin’s family with the financial burdens related to the transplant.

About Colin Wilson: “My name is Colin Wilson, and I am 22 years old. I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, which is a genetic terminal lung disease, at six months of age. For the past 22 years I have fought this battle, and my lungs have become progressively worse, to the point of needing a transplant. I am currently taking fourteen medications, including inhaled antibiotics and digestion medicine. I do airway clearance every day to keep the lungs from building up bacteria which cause lung infections. Within the past two years, this disease has progressed to the point that I have been hospitalized almost every other month since September, 2015. The progression of my disease is severe enough that UNC Chapel Hill is evaluating me to be placed on a double lung transplant list. I am trying to get on the waiting list, but due to the criteria for the out-of-pocket expenses related to the transplant, I need to raise money for medical expenses, relocation, housing and travel expenses. The transplant team at UNC has informed me that I must raise a minimum of $15,000 for these basic expenses in order to be placed on the list. These expenses are in addition to those covered by my insurance. The estimated amount I will need to cover all expenses to include after transplant problems that may arise is $40,000. I have so many things that I would like to do like going to college and being able to continue my passion for drawing. I want to be able to breathe for the first time without stopping every fifteen minutes to catch my breath. I want to know how it feels to not need an oxygen tank to breathe and a Bipap to keep me from being so tired the next day. I want to be an Uncle for my brother’s children, and someday get married and be a Dad. I want to be an inspiration for others who have fought and are still fighting this disease. I would greatly appreciate any help and support that you could possibly give. It doesn’t matter how much because any amount is one step closer to this wonderful gift that I have been given. Please remember me and my family in your prayers. Thank you so much for your support.”
