Don Warhurst, a retired Air Force veteran and eight-year resident of Brevard County, has been in and out of the hospital with repeated bouts of pneumonia since May. He has recently received the devastating diagnoses of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF).  PF is a progressive lung disease that has no known cure.   Don's condition is so advanced that he is not a candidate for the very minimal treatment available in the traditional medical community to slow the progression of the disease.

After exhaustive research seeking any options, we have discovered that stem cell treatment has shown positive results in others with similar circumstances, allowing them to successfully regain a significant amount of lost lung function.

However, the treatments are not covered by Medicare or insurance. Our family has decided to step out in faith and move forward with the treatment, despite the cost. It is truly our only option. Without this, the disease is expected to advance very rapidly, with fatal results. 

Don and Mary Ella, his wife of 55 years, have four children, five grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren (who are so young they are just getting to know him). 

He is the rock of our family and has so much more to give to his family and to the community. He is loved and needed so deeply, and we refuse to go down without a fight.  

We ask that our friends and family prayerfully consider joining us in this fight. No amount is too little, and every bit will be gratefully received and put directly into the cost of the treatments.
