The Story

A former paramedic in Wichita, Kansas, Doug Clarke was accustomed to rendering aid. He is NOT accustomed to asking for help.

Now, several serious medical conditions have robbed him of his ability to work. He takes 30 medications a day, which far exceed his disability income.  He is under incredible stress about finances, and that is not at all good for his health.

Doug's illness is progressing to the point that he will need a liver transplant in order to survive. As of now, he is just a couple of ranking points shy of being added to the transplant list. He needs frequent medical procedures that require co-pays beyond what his disability income provides for.

Can you please help with just a few dollars? Lifesaving cures should not only be reserved for the wealthy. Can you help him get the medical treatments he needs?

Doug is a kind and generous person who has touched the lives of so many.  Will you please join us in lifting Doug's spirits in whatever way feels comfortable for you? Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Friends, this is urgent. Doug's doctors have made another switch to his lifesaving medications. This new medication has really make a tremendous improvement for Doug, and yet it is out of reach because he cannot afford it. The co-pay for this one medication alone is $250/mo. on top of 30 other medications he takes daily. Doug is unable to work due to his illness and his disability checks don't cover his lifesaving meds. Doctors provided him with some free samples while we worked to raise money through a fundraiser, but we fell short, and the doctors won't give him more free samples.  So many of you have pitched in to help sustain Doug's quality of life.  Can you spare $5 dollars more? His spirit is broken and he needs a lift.  THANK YOU for anything you can do!

Doug received good news and bad news today. Here is his update: "I had to increase 3 medications in dosage. $241.00 just for those 3. I have no idea what I'm going to do. And I had good news today. My MELD score rose to 15! Only 9 more months at 15 or higher and I'm one step away from the transplant list."  

Doug's monthly medications far exceed his income. His spirits need a lift. Can you help? Thank you!

Latest update from Doug on 1/17/18: Insurance company will no longer cover one of my meds so we switch to one that they will, as they required. What cost me $60/month the last few years is now $117/month. Can't wait to see how many others nearly double! :-( Don't they hear me screaming when? WHEN!
