In March of 2013, Dellas was diagnosed with IPF... Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a type of lung disease that results in scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs for an unknown reason. Over time, the scarring gets worse and it becomes hard to take in a deep breath and the lungs cannot take in enough oxygen.
Since being diagnosed, Dellas has to be less active and has increased difficulty breathing. We are raising funds to help offset the cost of treatment at a center in Arizona. A single treatment is $7,000 which is not covered by insurance. It is recommended that patients go through two treatments. This doesn't include the cost of travel, hotel stays, gas and food.
DC has given so much to this community...help us get him the treatment he needs! Join us Monday, December 17th at Cubby's for DC Night! Cubby's will be donating 20% of sales that day to Dellas. There will also be a silent auction in 9 Bar, split pot and raffle drawings. If you can’t make it that night, silent auction items will be available in 9 Bar during the day with final drawings at 8pm.
Donations are being accepted for the silent auction or raffle at Brookings Radio. There is a "Dellas Cole Lung Fundraiser" account set up at Dacotah Bank for cash donations. For more information or to donate, call Cami Powers at Brookings Radio at 605-692-1430.
