My wife Paula needs a double lung transplant.

Paula has been living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis for quite a while. She is now at the point of needing a lung transplant in order to save her life. Together we have four children and 11 grandchildren, and she is the heart of our family! We’re all praying for this wonderful gift of life for her. Paula is a very positive person. She’s now choosing hope over despair. No surprise there!
