Duke has sent me a letter stating that they have stopped my evaluation with them. They gave me a reason of not being a good candidate at this time.
I went to MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) for a pre-evaluation to get another opinion. I will be working with them and their doctors and hope that a double lung transplant is in the future.
Since the new health care laws were put into affect I have lost some medical benefits. This has put a bigger financial burden on me and my family. All donations are greatly appreciated and many thanks for your generous gifts.
