A GoFundMe account has been established for a local Star Valley resident who has recently undergone a double lung transplant.
Guy Jacobson received the call nearly two weeks ago saying that compatible lungs had been found. He and his family made the trip to Salt Lake City where both of his lungs were replaced. The surgery was a success and Guy continues his recovery in the hospital.
Jacobson had previously been diagnosed with ending stage lung disease, an organic antigen that cannot be reversed, according to the GoFundMe page. All donations received will go towards medical bills related to his treatments and transplant surgery. The GoFundMe page, which was set up by family members, can be found by clicking here. In addition, a donation account has been set up at the Bank of Star Valley.
Guy and his wife, Celeste, are the longtime owners of Star Valley Disposal in Afton.
