Family and friends of Judy Rodriguez are raising money to pay for medical expenses associated with a double lung transplantation. Judy was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2008. She is married and a mother of two teenagers. She has been blessed with wonderful family, relatives and friends. It is now that she has deemed it necessary to get this process started.
As instructed by the Transplant Center in Houston, she will need to raise $25,000 before qualifying as a transplant recipient. This amount is required to guarantee the expected medical bills surpassing Medicare’s portion, medication costs and also the unexpected event of a longer stay at the hospital accrued during the healing process. The transplant will not occur until it is deemed that it has a met the requirements for the best possible outcome (which includes funding to assure all efforts are in place for this to happen).

Sorry I hadn’t updated this site in a while. I am officially listed on the wait list for a double lung transplant. It has been quite a journey getting to this point. I am overjoyed by the response this fundraiser has accomplished. My transplant team in Houston is astonished at what an outpouring of love I have been shown by family, friends and even strangers. To all of you many thanks.
I will try to be more diligent in updating on my status. For now, I am on a get ready any time they call and make the trip as quickly as possible to Houston. I have been prayed for by many people. I would like to request one further prayer…for the person that will unknowingly donate his/her lungs so that I can extend mine….I pray.
