Kenny (AKA Pops) Camp
Transplant Type: Double Lung
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Kenny Camp is fighting for his life. In early 2019, he was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis due to hypersensitivey pneumonitis. It is believed that his illness may have been caused by mold exposure more than twenty years ago. Kenny’s condition has continued to worsen, and now doctors say a double lung transplant is critical to his survival.
During such a challenging time, Kenny is thankful for his wife, Rosemarie, their children, grandchildren, family and friends. Kenny wishes they didn’t have to be so concerned about his health, but he is grateful for their love and support. Before his health began to worsen, he enjoyed fishing, boating, live music and exploring with his wife, but these days, his activities are quite limited. He looks forward to the transplant that will allow him to play with his dogs and grandchildren, go fishing, and take day trips with his wife. More than anything, Kenny just wants to be healthy enough to live his life again, but right now, he needs your help.
Unfortunately, Kenny’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average double lung transplant costs more than $1 million. And that’s only the beginning. Even with health insurance, which will cover the cost of the transplant, he faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of his life, he will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to his survival as the transplant itself. Due to his declining health, Kenny was forced to stop working as an auto mechanic, adding to the financial strain.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Kenny.
