Duane R. Jones 55, until recently, had been a hard working man all his life in the Corpus Christi, Texas area. Many in his community know him from Mars Vacuum, where he worked for 20 plus years. And was also known for being very generous with his homegrown vegetables and homemade pickles.

Duane was hospitalized with Pneumonia. While being treated for that, he developed another case of it. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and major scarring of the lungs during his recent  2 month hospital stay and is in need of a lung transplant.

Fortunately, Mr. Jones has insurance to help cover some of these medical expenses, but as he learns to adjust to his new life hooked up to Oxygen, he is unable to re join the workforce anytime in the near future.

Besides the usual household expenses and now co-pays, his HVAC unit is in dire need of replacement.  Temporary fixes have helped, but he really needs a new unit. Being on oxygen and struggling to breathe,  Should he go in for surgery, worrying about whether he will have air conditioning or heat should be the least of his concerns. 

Funds raised from this campaign will go towards that major expense, and help out with other bills and other unforseen expenses.

Duane has always been a very kind and giving person and with limited funds, is in need of help during this difficult time.  His goal is to return to being a productive part of society and be able to resume vegetable gardening (which he loves)

Thank you for your help, and if you aren't able to help at this time, please share this with your friends.

The Friends of Duane.
