In 2015, Sherri developed a cold that she could not get over. She was sent to a pulmonary doctor and they realized there was a serious problem and immediately sent her to Duke University, at that point we began our journey. She was accepted into the program for a double lung transplant.
We have been back and forth to Duke getting test after test done for the last 2 1/2 years. It is finally time! They have told her to move to Duke and get ready for the call.
We are excited and terrified all at the same time.

Update starting week 4 of Sherri’s journey. Monday she went to clinic all day going to labs for blood work and pharmacy to learn how to test for diabetes. You should have seen the look on her face when she thought of me sticking her finger, all is good. Met with her transplant coordinator, Cindy, who she has been with since she started in 2015. Met with 2 lung transplant surgeons who explained everything about the surgery. They are young, knowledge and full of answers. Met with with her Pulmonary Dr who usually has the most input. He thought she is moving forward to her goal. She is continuing rehab every day and we are attending classes as well. All these things must be met before she can get the call. Days go by fast and the weather is like home – hot one day and cold the next. Thankful to be here but miss everyone!!!!
Please go to HelpHopeLive.org. Donations can help ease the financial burden and stress of a double lung transplant and allow Sherri to focus on her recovery. We would like to thank all for their cards, supports and prayers.

Update: Starting week 3 of Sherri’s journey, Wednesday April 11 day 11 of 23 in rehab. Sherri is doing really good . They are pleased with her progress. As you all know she is a go getter but is still sore after workouts. Her 6 minute walk today was really good, even surprised herself. We attend classes each day together to learned more about what to expect and how doctors will deal with anything after transplant that may arise. They are always keeping you informed. Meeting a lot of new friends that are going through the same thing as her all working toward new lungs. There were 3 successful lung transplants this week end. She continues working hard toward the day she gets that call. Finally getting adjusted here but still miss all our family and friends. God has been so good and we are so grateful for his many blessings.
Please go to HelpHopeLive.org. Donations can help ease the financial burden and stress of her double lung transplant and allow Sherri to focus on her recovery. We are grateful for each and everyone’s prayers and support.

Hello Sherri and Tom, Offering encouragement for the boot camp process! Transplant is a long road - but the payoff at the end is worth it - trust me...
