Hello, my name is Debbie, I currently live in Joliet, IL. I am a 57-year-old Mom of three and a Grammy to a beautiful soon to be one year old grandson! Our family is looking forward to the arrival of his little brother in April.
I have been fighting so hard to get help and be healthy so my grandchildren will not remember me as the crazy sick Grammy but the crazy fun Grammy I really am! Below is my story of how it started and my struggle to get someone to listen.

I want to tell you a little about how it started and why I have come to Help Hope Live for fundraising.

Yesterday went to Northwestern Memorial and had another Blood gas test, Spirometry test and another 6 minute walk test. I was moved up on the UNOS list due to my walk test as of today and should know the results from the rest of tests by Monday. Still not feeling 100% but better than the last three weeks.

Steroids and antibiotics are working, feeling much better and hopefully will be able to reschedule blood gas test and walk test from last Friday to this Friday. I have been moved up a bit on the UNOS list.

My thoughts and heart are with you. I am so sorry you are going through this. I was unaware until today. I hope you do get well enough to receive the transplant and that you health improves. ❤️
