This is a call out for help for this young man, he is a friend of mine, I met him through the vasculitis support groups on facebook and he has been through a lot.
His name is JJ and he has Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (Wegener's) like me that has really messed up his lungs. On average, he has one surgery per month just to help him clear out the gunk that accumulates in his lungs so that he can breath. It is impossible for him to keep living this way, but he cannot afford to make the trip to see the expert that he needs to that could really help him. He spent last year's holidays in the hospital and this year he had to spend the holidays sick in bed instead of with his young son and family.
I know that money is tight for many people, but even if you could share the link to his donate page on facebook or wherever it would be wonderful.
