I Need Your Support To Get A Lung Transplant!
In 2010, I was diagnosed with emphysema and COPD. At the time, my breathing capacity was just 36% and it has gone down since then. The doctor who treated me gave me no hope for the future, saying that operating on me would be terminal. But in June, 2014, when I was hospitalized for pneumonia, I met Dr. Peters, a pulmonologist who assured me that I was a good candidate for a life-saving lung transplant!

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Jeff, who finally received the gift-of-life through a lifesaving double lung transplant on September 22nd at Vanderbilt University Hospital. Jeff is doing very well and recovering each and every day. He is now out of ICU and working hard at pulmonary rehab to acclimate to his new lungs and heal from his transplant surgery.Post-transplant medications to halt rejection, medical bills, post-transplant testing fees, lodging, and living expenses are quickly adding up. More than ever, Jeff needs your financial support during this critical time of his life. Please consider a donation to help defray the out-of-pocket expenses for Jeff. Thank you ahead of time for your thoughts, prayers and support for Jeff during his lung transplant journey.
