My name is Erin Coleman. I am 37 years old and had end stage lung disease from bronchiectasis. After more than ten years of continuous oxygen wearing and diminishing results, I was evaluated for a double lung transplant. Thankfully, Shands Hospital at University of Florida determined my ratty old lungs and I were prime candidates for transplantation.

After my health took a sudden turn for the worse, I was flown to Shands to fight to become stable enough for transplantation. I was very sick, and it set me back considerably, but in due time, lungs became available, and on 12 Oct 2015, I received my shiny new airbags! The lungs have made themselves quite comfortable for the most part, but as is expected with transplant living, theres still plenty of curveballs to dodge.

A friend shared your story. You're special to him, and he's been a special influence in my life. I hope I can help in even a small way. Be well, I know my Gators will take care of you.

Wishing you always... Walls for the wind, A roof for the rain And tea beside the fire. Thinking of you. xo
