Andrew Capen, 27, has been battling COVID-19 complications since July & needs new lungs, but hospitals won’t accept him because he’s “high risk.”
The transplant is his only long-term solution.
His family is desperate and wants hospitals to see him as a human rather than as a statistic.
His mother Brenda has contacted many hospitals and elected officials – but without a favorable outcome.
Time is running out for Andrew, who, though seemingly improving as far as mobility, blood work and kidney function, still needs a new pair of lungs – as COVID-19 has ravaged his lungs to the point of irreversible damage.
Here is the complete story on Andrew Capen and his mother’s battle to get a hospital to accept him as a lung transplant candidate. It also includes a link to his gofundme page.
