Dear Family and Friends,

Some of you know that I suffer from Pulmonary Fibrosis. My doctors at the University of Virginia have told me that my only option is a life-saving double lung transplant. Three weeks prior to receiving my diagnosis, I lost my loving husband John. He was my best friend and strongest support system and I miss him very much. I am now on oxygen 24/7, I am no longer able to work and do many of the everyday things we all take for granted.

I wanted to let all of my family and friends know, I got the call from UVA saying I am officially on the transplant list for new lungs. I have been to uva so many times in the last 15 months for test after test and scans, xrays and any other thing they could think of. I did everything they told me to do and now hopefully its all going to pay off. It all seems so unreal right now, I have a lot to digest and prepare for. Not to mention I am a little more than terrified. Thank you for all of the prayers you have sent my way and the donations to help me get through this. I love you all
