Seven years ago my mother, Lanida Oliver, had a double lung transplant. I know your first thought was “Wow, was she a smoker?” Actually no, in 2006 she was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis of the Lungs. In laymen’s terms it’s a life threatening disease that affects the respiratory system.

On August 12, 2011 she was called by her doctors at the Mayo Clinic, in Jacksonville FL; her new lungs were ready. After 8 hours of surgery, she had a new set of lungs. She stayed in intensive care for 2 weeks. We were told by the doctors that she would have to take a lot of medication for the rest of her life, and that the transplant doesn’t normally last past 7 years.
