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.

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.

On Friday 11-15-2019 I was seen by my pulmonary transplant doctor at UMMC. She was very positive and said that I am a “perfect candidate” for a bilateral lung transplant now! At my next appointment my listing number will be increased due to an increase in my oxygen intake.
Of course no one knows when the transplant will happen and hopefully I can maintain where I am right now as far as the rest of my health and weight. Fingers crossed that I don’t lose anymore weight! Seems it’s a fine line for a transplant to happen. You have to be sick enough for your listing number to be high yet healthy enough to withstand the surgery,
While this is very hard for my family and supporters to handle, we all know that eventually things will change. I am blessed beyond words for all the help and support.
If you or anyone you know has contributed, I appreciated every penny and prayer! If you would be kind enough to continue to help when every you can and spread the word I truly do thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
