SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — 42-year-old Nathan Foote Foote is in need of a double lung transplant after getting sick with COVID-19.
Foote has been waiting at the University of Minnesota Medical Center since January 17th for a new pair of lungs. A double lung transplant can cost up to a $1 million. A benefit Hip Hop show is being organized by Foote’s friends to help his family of seven.

After spending fifteen years behind bars for aggravated assault and drugs, Foote turned his life around and has been sober for eight years.
