My dad's heart has only been working at 20% and it is extrememly enlarged.  We are in the process of trying to get his name on a heart transplant list and once it is, he has to have it done in Madison, WI.  They have been applying for disability but they keep denying him. We have a 2 story house so once here we have to buy a chair lift so he can get to the bedroom and a shower.  We are hoping for his disability to get approved so not only their hospital debt will start lessoning, and to work on our basement to make it into a living quarters for them and he can have a shower instead of tub to get in and out of.  Right now my mom's wages are being garnished at max allowable and they are living strictly on her paycheck from Wal-Mart.  

  Right now they live in this tiny town in Nebraska which is miles away from hospitals and VA's.  They have to drive 2 hours to get to Omaha where the nearest VA can take care of his heart and the nearest hospital is over 45 minutes away. They are litteraly in the middle of nowhere.  

   At least here in Roscoe, IL which is on the border of Wisconsin. A less than an hour ride (50 min) will get him to the best VA hospital around.

   Recently he had to be transported to the 45 minute away hospital because his heart went into congestive heart failure and they had to stabilize him and now he is being transported to Omaha VA hospital (all by ambulance which means more medical debt).  It is now more important than ever to get him here but we all lack the funds to do so.

My Goal is to have him here before the snow really hits us.
