Donald Trump presents lung patient with suitcase of cash
Great article about Trumps charitable deeds

The harrowing journey of a Canadian who just underwent his second double lung transplant took a surprising turn after American billionaire businessman Donald Trump presented him with a suitcase of cash to ease his financial burden. 

James Reimer, 29, has been in Toronto General Hospital for the last eight months. The financial toll of living in a different city has been challenging for James and his wife, Adena.  With little to no income and minimal savings, Adena appealed for help on, a crowd funding website developed by business tycoons Bill Zanker and Donald Trump.  The couple hoped to raise $10,000 to help with medication and medical supplies, food, rent and public transportation.  But when “The Donald” heard of their plight, he flew Adena to New York for the site’s launch on May 8 and presented her with a suitcase of cash totaling $40,000.

“The Trump donation relieved huge financial burdens.  We are extremely grateful for it,” Adena told CTV News.

Donald Trump Gives $3000 to a Man with Rare Immune Disease Called GPA Vasculitis


On Trumps new Funding website, a campaign is to help a man and his wife survive financially immediately following his kidney transplant.  Donations went to everyday expenses during our recovery, like food, medication, mortgage, utilities, and toward paying future impending hospital bills.

Donald Trump donated $3000 to their campaign. They posted “I can’t thank him in person, so I’ll thank him here: THANK YOU, MR. TRUMP!!!!!!!  Now I’d like to see if we can keep this going.  We still have 3 more weeks left in the campaign and I’d love to get out from under the medical bills from Andrew’s original hospital stay, as well as some medical (and other) bills of my own.  Imagine if Andrew and I can come out of this with a new lease on life physically and, to a certain extent, finacialy (sic).  We can do it!”
