Transplant Patients Relief Fund Is First To Pay Family Expenses For Recovering Transplant Patients

New Charity is first to pay family expenses for recovering transplant patients. The new charitable organization will fill a nationally unmet need among the thousands of recovering transplant patients suffering financial devastation.

For Immediate Release

BOCA RATON, Fla./EWORLDWIRE/July 11, 2006 --- Florida’s Division of Consumer Services recently registered Transplant Patients Relief Fund (TPRF) www.transplantrelief.org. The new charitable organization will fill a nationally unmet need among the thousands of recovering transplant patients suffering financial devastation. http://newsroom.eworldwire.com/newsroom_headers/309783_72290.jpg" align="right">

Organ recipients, such as liver transplant patients, often cannot resume regular employment up to one year or more after surgery. Medical Insurance or Social Security Disability benefits cover only a portion of the huge unexpected needs during recovery.

Along with the $3,000 to $5,000 in required monthly medications that could be needed for the rest of a patient’s life, he or she can face continual medical bills as the hospital’s transplant team becomes part of a patient's life forever.

The biggest disaster which faces recovering transplant patients is resuming payment of normal monthly expenses, such as mortgage, car payments, utilities, food and tuition.

If the recovering patient is the primary or sole contributor to a family’s income, and is unable to work, the results are devastating. People can lose their homes, their good credit, their cars and insurance this way. Even paying utility bills becomes a huge challenge. Surprisingly doctors admit that many of their patients are forced to file bankruptcy. Stress and embarrassment becomes a part of daily life and for other patients, divorce follows not long after surgery.

“What should be a dream come true, the saving of a life, can become a living nightmare,” states James Sporrer, founder of TPRF and himself a liver transplant patient.

Transplant Patients Relief Fund’s goal is to continually raise money to meet the needs of recovering patients until they can resume their regular work schedule.

To promote donations TPRF will aggressively reward donors who give as little as $25 to $50. Through special arrangements with major airlines and travel promoters, charitable givers will receive such premiums as free companion airfares, round trip tickets for two to Hawaii, the Caribbean or Europe.

This year’s goal is to raise ten million dollars in cash, goods and real estate. Transplant Patients Relief Fund is depending on the average person as the backbone of its support with strong backing from sports, entertainment celebrities plus corporate donors. Its initial goal is to receive a gift of real estate or cash to open an Early Recovery Hospitality House near a hospital that performs transplant surgeries.

Patients will live in a clean supportive environment for $25 per night close to the hospital for the first few months post surgery. During this crucial period daily lab tests and frequent examinations are required. Typical hospital discharge occurs after seven to ten days however most patients cannot return to distant homesteads until months after surgery.

One difference in this organization is that contributors are able to designate their gifts for specific purposes or the general fund. Donors who can afford it can also choose to adopt a family for a year.

"We believe we are our brother’s keeper. Many ask how much should I give? Some say, 'Give until it hurts.' We say, 'Give until it stops hurting,'" said Sporrer.

Donations can be mailed to Transplant Patients Relief Fund at 5910 Patio Drive Boca Raton, Fla. 33433. Indicate whether to accept or decline the reward offered for the specific donation amount.

Credit card donations can be made at www.transplantrelief.org.
