The Chase McGowen Medical Assistance Fund
As a family we have borne the weight of Chase's medical expenses through insurance, extreme budgeting, and the charity of friends, family and strangers. We are deeply touched and eternally grateful for the help and outpouring of love we have received.

Due to the extensive medical bills that he has generated during his life, Chase will exceed his lifetime medical cap during the transplant process. It is estimated that costs for the transplant and post-surgery care will generate medical bills in excess of $800,000 over what insurance will cover.

What can you do to help?
Please pray for Chase, his immediate and extended family and the health care professionals that are working to keep him alive.

And if possible donate to The Chase McGowen Medical Assistance Fund. Donations can either be made through PayPal or N.T.A.F.
