Dear Family and Friends,
Breathing is something most of us take for granted. I know I did. But when your lungs do not provide the air you need, your body becomes paralyzed and you canâ€™t move. Iâ€™ve been slowly losing lung capacity since I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, two years ago. Then, last summer, it became worse. Even with oxygen, I couldnâ€™t get dressed or walk from one room to another. After breathing tests, x-rays, and a cat scan of my lungs, the results showed that the disease had progressed and a lung transplant was going to be necessary.
