A Bell County locksmith is in dire need of a new liver and he is reaching out to the community to help cover the cost of the transplant.   

62-year-old Bobby Bulls, Owner of Donald Bulls Locksmith Service in Temple, was diagnosed with Hepatitis-C in 2008 and was told he would need a liver transplant.   

Now, 11 years later, it has come down to the wire and they need help raising money to cover the medical costs and financial burden of the procedure.   

Bobby's family started a GoFundMe page last week and have been able to raise close to $7,000 which is less than half of the what they need to raise.   

“So we’re hoping that we can get some more money raised, I just don’t want him worrying about anything because he’s done so much and I just want him to be ok,” said Bobby Bulls' wife Bernice. 

The surgery will cost close to $400,000, but Bobby and his family will try and raise $10,000 while the insurance will cover the rest.   

They are trying to raise an additional $10,000 to cover living expenses because Bobby will have to stay in Dallas for up to three months after the surgery.
