Please Help Debi Reach Her Financial Goals For Surgery and Related Expenses!

Family and friends of Debi are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical and anti rejection medicines associated with a lung transplantation. In addition we will also need funds to help with monthly bills and housing. Any assistance would be helpful and appreciated.

Well it’s been a long several weeks!

I was in Frederick Memorial Hospital from 1-23-2020 and then taken to UMMC form 1-28-2020 to 2-15-2020! I’m so happy to be home where I have started rehab to get as strong as possible for my transplant.

The transplant will be a VERY long, hard and life changing operation. I am very very blessed to have such support family and friends to help. SO many people have helped in so many ways. I am praying that your prayers and support continue. Thanks again for everyone’s help and we will keep everyone post on my progress.

So… here we are in 2020!! Most people celebrate the New Year. I dread it! To me it means insurance deductibles and co-pays! Living on Social Security Disability which is next to impossible.

I feel like I keep getting weaker both physically and mentally. The constant high flow of 24/7 oxygen is exhausting. I try not to go out because if I do the following days I am in bed resting for the day.

I met with my transplant doctor and did some testing. She tells me that I’m a perfect candidate for a double lung transplant. I’ll be on the transplant registry list for a year on 3-18-2020!!! So at this point it comes down to, More days of waiting for “the call”. More prayers for strength.
