Let’s Help Tina Get Her New Lung!

Tina Nelson is a 57 year-old woman who is very ill. Tina is my wife of thirty-two years, a mother, grandmother and a nurse by profession. Unknown at the time, she was born with Alpha1-Antitrypsin Deficiency, a rare genetic lung disease. Not until 1996 was she diagnosed with genetic emphysema. Now, after many years of treatment it’s time for a life-saving double lung transplant.

April 6,2018 was a milestone. One year since my double lung transplant . Wow what a wonderful difference. I’m able to do and enjoy things again with out dragging my oxygen equipment. And most importantly without being so short of breath that I couldn’t enjoy myself .being around family and friends and spending quality time has meant so much to me . I am blessed that I was given a second chance with transplant. Thank you all for your support and your encouragement through this journey . I am looking forward to my new journey ahead . I will keep you updated . Always Tina and Henry Nelson
