Fighting Heart, Lung, and Kidney failure for 10 years..
My wife, Brigette Reudy, was diagnosed with a rare lung disease (Pulmonary Hypertension) in 2009. PH is a terminal disease that has caused Brigette’s heart and kidney to fail. Throughout the years, she has been on 10 of the 14 therapies that are currently available for the disease. Brigette is in the final stage of her lung disease and her only option to live is a double lung transplant.

February, 4, 2019 I’m back at UCLA, to finish testing to hopefully be listed for transplant. When I started evaluation, the dr talked about definetly double lung possible kidney, replacing my right heart valve, and any other fixes I may need on the heart. Thank to all for they’re time and generosity. Expect another update mid February. I am blessed to have HelpHopelive, for all the guidance and support. Brigette Ruedy
