On Aug. 3, 2003, Stacey Collver was diagnosed with a rare lung disease called Lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Her life was saved by a generous organ donor! Stacey received a double-lung transplant on Nov. 22, 2004.
Nearly 13 years later, she is now in chronic rejection, and her lung function has dropped to 24%. She is currently on the waiting list for a rare second lung transplant.

Today, it took all my energy to walk out of my apartment, and down to the stop sign and back. I sat down to rest twice.
I also fell over the little camp chair, because the oxygen cord got stuck in the steel cart and came off my face. I tried to keep my cool, but after resting, I was worried about the oxygen supply. I had left the apartment with less than 1/2 tank, which doesn’t last long at a high flow rate.
Nevertheless, we persisted; my mother was right by my side.
And here we are. Today marks 12.5 years past the first double-lung transplant. I am very grateful to my donor, my mother, sister, and all who have provided the love and support to get me this far in life. Thank you!
