Our sister, Jimmie Gay Hynes is suffering from a genetic lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. There is no cure for the disease and her doctors at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida have told us that her only option is a life-saving double lung transplant.
Jimmie Gay has lived in Lee County since 1982. She dedicated many years to her profession as a Fire Protection Specialist until she was forced to quit due to her declining health. She has also had to give up some of her passions such as woodworking, gardening and even her two cats which she adored. She loves her family very much and spends as much time as she is able with us and her 9 nieces and nephews, and of course her little dog Freddie Mac. Although her activities are very limited now, Jimmie Gay is optimistic about her future looking forward to returning to work and becoming an active member of the community again.

I would really like to express my gratitude to all who are working so hard to help me achieve my goal of getting on the lung transplant list. Especially my two sisters Shelly and Holly and their families who have pretty much gone non-stop since this whole thing began over a year and a half ago. I loved them before I got sick. But, now I think I love them even more. However their hard work would be in vain were it not for the generosity and support, both financial and physical, of so many beautiful people out there. You all have a place in my heart.
