Butch Miles – Fundraiser

logoButch was diagnosed the first week of March with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which has no treatment other than a transplant.  After a lot of evaluation and testing, Butch was accepted as a candidate for a lung transplant at the Methodist Hospital at the Houston Medical Center.  Due to critical timing Butch and Linda took up temporary residency in Houston yesterday (July 18, 2014) awaiting a call from the transplant team.  The total time waiting for a transplant donor and the post transplant care could be upwards of twelve months.  Because of their loss of income and added living expenses, we are part of a group of concerned friends that are involved to raise funds to help them offset these additional expenses.In addition to setting up this avenue of contribution through the AJS website, we will be coordinating some fundraising concerts and exploring other avenues to raise funds.
