My mother, Sonia, has been fighting a losing battle with Lung Fibrosis for going on 12 years. A far cry from the 3-6 years the doctors quoted her as the “usual” life expectancy after diagnosis. There are many things about her case that would set her apart from the usual. She was diagnosed in her early thirties, the usual onset age being late fifties/early sixties with a disease for which there is no cure without a lung transplant. Only medication to make her life more comfortable.

For the 13 years my mom has spent battling her condition she has never let it define or hold her back. She raised 2 children as a single mother & worked hard to provide for us. With every passing year her condition worsened & she never let those around her know it. Those difficult years brought along many struggles & many blessings. She met her husband Rolando (Tito) who loves & annoys her, he is now her full-time caretaker. She also has 2 beautiful grandbabies who absolutely adore her.

Hello everyone! Sonia was taken to the operating room to get prep up for her new lungs. The lungs are being flown in. Once they are here the surgery will begin sometime early evening. This has been a long battle for many years for her. The time is finally her. It’s going to take time for recovery. Please keep my Lively wife in your prayers.
