Frank Fights for life


My name is Kathy Coleman, my husband Frank is in need of a liver transplant, I tried to put him on my insurance, he is denied because of pre-exisiting conditions, but I still have to hold insurance on him til July 2013 in which they will look over his case and decide whether or not not to add him., Medicaid denied saying I make to much money and I’m the only income coming in. I have missed a lot of work since he has been hospitalized twice in the last two weeks.. I ask of you is to post on your FB newsfeed, the Frank Coleman Benefit Fund at The Bank Of The West-Omaha or Gofundme.franksfight.. Thank You so much..
