Wayne desperately needs a double lung transplant.
Pulmonary Capillary Hemangiomatosis. Like us, you have probably never heard of it. PCH is a lung disease where the capillaries continue to grow, like the roots of trees, through the lungs minimizing lung space and making it impossible to breathe. Unfortunately, this disease has also put a lot of strain on Wayne’s heart, causing Pulmonary Hypertension and chronic right heart failure. At his last appointment (10/16/2020) his right heart catherizaton showed his heart was working 15 times harder than a normal 40 year olds. The doctor informed us the only treatment left is a complete double lung transplant. Replacing his lungs will not only cure him of Pulmonary Capillary Hemangiomatosis and Pulmonary Hypertension, it will also reduce the strain to his heart and reverse the chronic heart failure. Without a transplant, the disease is fatal.
