Paulette just spent a week in UCSF Hospital for a Kidney Infection which the doctors don't know if it's related or not to her lung condition, they do know it is all related to her Auto Immune system. She is at home now and is on several medications and a strict diet to hopefully get her kidney's under control and be able to have her lung transplant. Thank you again for your support , Prayer"s and donations we really appreciate it .

Dear Family and Friends , Life is very precious to all of us and we all like to live life to the fullest.
In 2010 I went to the Doctor because I had a persistent cough it just would not go away. My Doctor recommended a C T Scan of my chest. After numerous tests my Pulmonary Dr told me I have Interstitial Lung Disease, which is scaring of the lungs. I was told that my longevity of life would be aprox 5 years and that the only cure is a lung transplant. As much as I loved working as a care giver I was told I would have to go on Total Disability and be on Oxygen 24 hrs a day.
Organ transplants are lifesaving but can be very expensive . UCSF Transplant Dept suggested a Fundraising to cover outside costs over and above what our insurance would cover such as out of pocket Travel to and from UCSF at least once a month to have check ups before my transplant , Hotel expenses, Relocation expenses while recovering from the transplant which will take about 6 weeks and my Caregiver not to mention Medications I will have to take for the rest of my life. HelpHopeLive assures Fiscal Accountability for Donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or Reimburse Medically related expenses.
Your Financial gifts will be greatly appreciated and will help my family and I make it through this difficult time.
