Hey everyone! My name is Yazmin Rivera Colón, I’m 38 years young, I have Bronchiectasis, a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred making it hard to clear mucus and hard to breathe. I had received a double lung transplant on June 4th, 2016. Had an amazing and fast recovery. I enjoyed my new lungs and loved them too the fullest. Unfortunately due to having had COVID, both of my new lungs were re-damaged and Im on the waiting list once again. Currently, I need help for travel to Boston for constant appointments, checkups, parking fees, tolls etc. Sometimes my appointments are so back to back that requires me booking a hotel nearby for the night. Simple tasks such as walking to my car, going up the stairs and even showering have once again become more and more difficult. I am a mother to a wonderful 7 year old, Damian, whom is my miracle baby. I found out I was expecting when I was about to be placed on the list initially. Multiple doctors advised me to get an abortion due to the severity of my condition. I chose to have my son and postponed the transplant.

Psalm 34:7; The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them. Our prayers now are for a speedy, miraculous, and divine recovery. God continue to bless you!
