Tammy Short’s Journey to Breathe Again

Our Mom/Mamaw/Sister/Wife/Friend to All is getting Lungs! After a seven-year battle with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, a rare genetic disease that affects vital organs including the lungs, Tammy has finally been approved to be placed Active on the Double Lung Transplant List. This is incredibly news that brings hope to all who love her, and we are asking for your support!
Tammy is the ROCK of her family! As a single mother to both of her daughters (Tiffany and Amanda), one of eight siblings, and a successful Leader in her career for many years, she has lived a life providing service, guidance, unconditional love and support, humility, and grace. Her heart has always found true joy in GIVING. Family, friends, and strangers alike have always known she has a safe place ready for them at any moment. Tammy’s life is a GIFT to more people than can be counted.
The donations we are seeking will go 100% towards the double lung transplant surgery costs, the extended 30 day hospital stay that is required post-transplant, the housing/living costs for the additional 30 days that requires her and her daughter(s) to remain in the Lexington vicinity for daily care and monitoring, as well as ongoing post-transplant care for the remainder of her beautiful life.
Your financial contribution is tax deductible. Your support will provide a sense of security and peace for Tammy and her family, as she battles for her life physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially.
