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.

Hello Everyone, Since my last posting I have been hanging in there. 🙂 I was back in the hospital 2 weeks ago with the usual lung exasperation. I was there for 5 days taking steroids, antibiotics and fluid thru IV. I have a nurse, PT and OT here at the house everyday to help me gain my strength again. Seems to be every few months now. On August 18th I have been on the transplant list for 5 months. Yesterday I spoke with my transplant coordinator and it was explained to me that the wait for a transplant could be at least a year! This really set me back! I was honestly thinking 6 months was the “norm” to be on the list. She explained that even though I am end stage emphysema, some patients can live longer than those with other lung diseases. While I can understand that, it still hit hard!! The thought of being so limited and not being self sufficient in so many ways is very depressing. I will meet with the pulmonary transplant doctor on August 30th. Hopefully after more pulmonary testing my score will increase placing me higher on the list. Fingers crossed! Meanwhile, I want to thank everyone for the financial help and prayers. Please, if you can, continue to help and pray. Every prayer and dollar is so so appreciated!
