Amy Needs Your Help

Sixteen years ago, Amy Prince fought a winning battle against cancer– a Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that was located in her chest cavity. The battle was tough and the chemotherapy and radiation treatments were nearly lethal to her but she came out on top. Now, a decade and a half later, her heart has shown the long-term effects of the chemo treatment and has multiple points of failure. A heart transplant is her only hope for survival.

Amy has enjoyed the holiday season at home with her family. She’s fully retired from the state and receiving in-home nursing care three nights per week. The rest of her care is taken on by her loving mother and father. Rehab appointments and small outings dot her weekly activities. Otherwise she keeps herself busy in her childhood home with painting, crafts and puzzles.

Amy’s heart birthday– 1 year after the transplant– brings with it the news that she will likely be released from rehabilitation care into a home health situation. Very likely she will be moving back in with Don & Jeanne as they train on her various pressure-support machines. Amy is excited to be getting out of an institution!
