I used to be an outgoing, full of energy kind of person. Now, I have COPD.

Hello. I’m Rebecca Ward, and this is my life story. I started to feeling like I just couldn’t catch my breath; so I went to the doctor and was told I had an infection and bronchitis. I was given some antibiotics, and an inhaler. Needless to say, my problem was getting worse. I ended up going back to the doctor, and still my doctor told me the same thing again and gave me the same antibiotics. After the 3rd time I was about to lose it! Something was very wrong and the doctor just wasn’t listening to me. He was going to put me back on the same medication. I just got done with after the 3rd time. I went to another doctor he done x-rays and other tests. I was told I had a very bad case of COPD. All of this started in 2006. I’ve been fighting it for a long time. Now it’s done gotten worse. I’m in need of a double lung transplant. I’m not able to get on the list until I at least raise $7,000.00 or more.

Hi, I’m Rebecca Ward, As everyone knows I’m trying to raise my to help on extra expenses. God works in a mysterious way. I was told that I had to have a $7,000 in a fundraiser before I got on a transplant list. After talking with my Dr. with my concerns he told me that I can be on list but continue to raise as much as possible can. It was a few months later I got a call letting me know that they have a donor. I think God for for every breath I take and I appreciate all the prayers and donations from family and friends. You can go on HelpHopeLive Rebecca Ward lung transplant on Facebook, you can Google Help Hope Live Rebecca Ward lung transplant, or on YouTube. I really appreciate your help. At the moment I’m still in New Orleans at a apartment very close to the hospital if anything goes wrong my team is there for me. With this virus going around and some selfish people grabbing up all the hand sanitizer and whips. I don’t see where anyone would need 6 pks of bathroom tissue, or paper towels. You know what though it’s going to be okay because God didn’t let me go this far without any kind of message.

Good afternoon to my family and friends. My team of doctors at Ochsners reviewed my case again. I’m extremely grateful that I’m now officially on the double lung transplant list. I’ve got End Stage COPD which means nothing else can be done except a transplant. I still need to raise money to help pay for the cost of living for myself and my caregiver. I appreciate all that was donated. So far we’ve raised a total of $450 some of this money was raised on a GoFundMe account. Needless to say I couldn’t have a GoFundMe account and a Help Hope Live; so the GoFundMe was closed. The money that was raised on the GoFundMe is put aside. The reason why I didn’t put it in the Help Hope Live is that GoFundMe had already took their portion out and I didn’t need for Help Hope Live to take out a portion out of it also.
