In 2008, Canton resident Bob Glynn began experiencing fatigue and, after a lung biopsy, was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. This is a disease that results in scarred and stiffened lungs. As a result, he has trouble getting oxygen into the bloodstream. There is no cure and those with advanced cases, such as Bob's, need a lung transplant to survive.
In addition to insurance, Bob is responsible for approximately 10 percent of the total cost including the transplant, medicines, and numerous other expenses. Our goal is to raise $75,000 to help Bob and his family with these expenses.
Bob lives in Canton with his wife Janet and their two teenagers. Despite the added burden of an oxygen tank and his need for a lung transplant, Bob has spent more than 1,000 hours over the past five years helping others at St. Patrick Church events.
On Friday, 1/25, we will be hosting a benefit happy hour for Bob at the Hartford
Elks Club featuring The Voodoo River Band.
Date: Friday, 1/25/13
