I Need YOU to help hope LIVE for Me!

Dear friends, my family and I can’t begin to express how much the thoughts, prayers, hugs, prayers, food, prayers, rides to doctors, prayers, stories of hope, and prayers have touched us over these first four months of this campaign! All of you have given so much in so many ways, it just blows us away! Reaching the first goal of $20,000 so soon just blows us away as well! THANK YOU from the depths of our hearts!
You will notice the goal has been moved up to $50,000. In the past four months I have learned that my post-transplant medications will be significantly more expensive than I first estimated thanks to a different insurance classification, and not being able to discontinue an expensive pre-transplant medication. Also, I have learned the most recent average cost of a double lung transplant is now $1.3 million, which means my share will be roughly $260,000. In light of these increasing amounts, I’ve increased our goal. I’m excited to see how quickly we can reach it!
Thank you again to every single one of you who has supported us in any way since this transplant journey began, but most especially thank you for your prayers! We feel them and we cherish them! Please keep them coming! And know we pray for all of you too! XX

This morning I want to take the time to say a HUGE thank you to all the people who have responded so very graciously (and generously) to this campaign! I never realized how many people I am connected to through my family and friends! I’ve heard the quote about there being just 6 degrees of connection between any two people on earth, but WOW! I think in my life it is like only 3 degrees! The best part of it all is how each of these people is supporting me with their prayers! I know I can keep giving it my all (even if my all is small) with the strength of prayers holding me up! We’ve only just started and the road ahead may be long, but with prayers and shares we’ll get there, step by step! Love to all!
