Karen is currently suffering from Pulmonary Fibrosis that has caused the complete loss of one of her lungs and over 50% loss of her second lung. She has been placed on the top list for a transplant and her friends and family are praying daily for her. She has been told that for the transplant she will be required to pay a portion of the cost of the transplant that is well over $150,000. We are trying to gather as much of this as we can. However this has been a huge burden to Karen and her family and not only the news that she will not live without a transplant but that the financial amount is very costly and must be paid.
