Hello! I had a double lung transplant on May 3, 2012. My body started rejecting the lung in December 2015 and I've been in chronic rejection ever since. I can't do nearly as much as I could before the rejection, but with the help of my loving husband I am able to still enjoy life to the fullest with my lowered lung function. I'm not sure what's going to happen next? If I'm going to need another double long transplant? Really not sure what the future holds for me, but I making the best out of the life I have now. ❤️

Thank you for your time and interest. I received the gift of a new life by having a double lung transplant on May 3, 2012. Unfortunately in December 2015, my body started rejecting the new lungs. I've been put on more antirejection medication due to the situation. The side effects from being in rejection and the increased antirejection medications has caused many new health issues. The prednisone has given me diabetes. And I was diagnosed with gastroparesis a gastrointestinal illness which I need to have an operation to help manage the symptoms. Gastroparesis is a non-curable, debilitating disease. Most of my life now consists of me going to doctors visits and being tested for all my illnesses. Thank you for your interest. Any amount of money would be so helpful. Thank you for your kindness, Deborah Hopper
