Benefit for Tom Park

 9/13  12 to 7 PM

 ”HelpHopeLive”, A Breath of Rock n Roll event to benefit the NY Lung Transplant Fund. Chicken BBQ,Raffles & Live music by “Tuff Luck”. $20 in advance, $25 at the door. To purchase tickets contact Kiersten Park at 415-0724. Price of ticket includes the chicken BBQ.

Tom Park began experiencing difficulty breathing in April 2008. His son noticed he was having shortness of breath while they were working on a project together. After a misdiagnosis of pneumonia, many x-rays, tests, and medications, Tom was sent to a pulmonologist. It was then he was told that he was suffering from the lung disease known as pulmonary fibrosis. In December 2011, Tom’s doctor decided it was time to consider a lung biopsy, as there appeared to be some decline in his pulmonary function tests. The lung biopsy was performed in January 2012, and confirmed that Tom is, in fact, suffering from a form of pulmonary fibrosis known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The only known cure is a lung transplant. Late 2012, the Park family began contacting the Cleveland Clinic, the academic, non-profit medical center. The clinic has been guiding the family through the myriad of decisions that need to be made to choose the best course of action. There will be a great deal of testing to be done. These will include fees above and beyond what the insurance company will cover. In addition, Tom will need to be on anti-rejection medication for the rest of his life following the transplant. To help offset these astronomical uninsured expenses associated with transplantation, the Park family has established a fundraising campaign in Tom’s honor with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. The Parks are holding a benefit on September 13, 2014 and are looking for donations for this event. All donations are tax deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the New York Lung Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. If you wish to make a donation: Make checks payable to: HelpHOPELive Note in memo section: In honor of Tom Park Please send to: HelpHOPELive 2 Radnor Corporate Center 100 Matsonford Road, Suite 100 Radnor, PA 19087 For credit card contributions, please call (800) 642-8399 or visit helphopelive.
