The Fuller family is looking to raise money for David Fuller, who was diagnosed with congestive heart failure two years ago. Since the diagnosis, Fuller was released from his job and has been waiting for months for the approval of disability.
Fuller recently landed back in the hospital where it was determined he had pneumonia and respiratory syncytial virus infection, which ultimately worsened his heart condition.
To help with rising costs, his wife Candy started a Facebook fundraiser looking to get $500 for a life vest he needs that would allow him to leave the hospital.
The vest is temporary until he can receive a defibrillator, which is pending donation from St. Jude’s Research Hospital. After that, the hope is for a heart transplant.
But because of Fuller’s extensive medical history dating back to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 12 and thyroid cancer in 2013, he may not be a candidate for a heart transplant because of his extensive radiation and chemotherapy. Funds will help with medical bills, medications and daily needs. The funds might also be used for funeral arrangements.
