Prayer/donation request

I'm just copying and pasting this here, and you can click on the title of this post to see original request that has been made for help.  It has been confirmed by many reliable sources that this is for real, and I strongly encourage you to pray and help as you feel G-d leading you.  A man's life is hanging in the balance:

Just over a week ago we sent out a plea to raise money for our friend, Michael Milne, who is in a Busan Hospital waiting for an organ transplant.  We jumped in with two feet to try to raise the money our friend needs in order to have the surgery, and because of this, the information at hand has been very disconnected. 
In an effort to be more concise, we have gone through all of the posts and tried to provide all of the relevant information in one spot.  We have kept the money donation posts here, to try to send personal notes of thanks.  (Please be patient!)
 Michael Milne, a teacher from New Zealand, has been teaching English in Miryang, South Korea for almost five years.  He works at four different schools, and loves his job very much.  He is not a big partier, but he did enjoy the occasional drink.  He went to the hospital with stomach problems, was transferred to a Busan hospital, and has been told he needs a liver transplant, or he will not survive.  Mick’s family does not have the 40-50 million won that the hospital says is not covered by his Korean National Health Insurance.
As we have seen, things change quickly, but at this point, plans for a live donor transplant are going ahead!  The surgery is scheduled for next week.  For your information, you can read about live donor transplants here:
While this is great news, and half of the battle, it means we need the donations more than ever.
We are so grateful to tell you that we have raised close to 10 million won from your extremely generous donations (as of Wednesday, Nov. 23rd).   The full sum of your donation is going into Mick’s bank account, and helping to pay the hospital bills, which are quickly accumulating; and helping to support his family, since he is not working. 
Unfortunately, we still have a ways to go to get to the necessary 40 – 50 million won quoted by the hospital.
Please continue with your support, whether it be through prayers, good thoughts, kind words, or money donations.  We need them all!  We will continue to post updates about Mick, as well as any events we plan in order to help raise funds.
We’d like to extend our sincere thanks, and extreme gratitude in the generosity that people have shown.  Please find some happiness in knowing that you really are helping to save a life.  We are truly overwhelmed with the kindness of the communities we have reached out to.  Thank you so much!
Much thanks to the people with O- blood that have offered to donate.  We will need you, and we’ll be in touch with details soon!  Thank you for your support!
