My husband, Randy Horne, was diagnosed with COPD and Emphysema in 2009. He has been on oxygen 24/7 ever since. His health has declined and his doctors at Duke University Hospital have told us that his only option now is a life-saving lung transplant. Without this transplant, Randy’s doctors have told us that he may only live for about 3 more years.
Randy is 59 years old, a loving husband, father, grandfather, a long standing member of Trindale Baptist Church, an Army Vet and good friend to many. As soon as he was diagnosed his doctors told him that he was no longer able to work at a job he loved – working as a truck mechanic. He misses riding his motorcycle and hunting and many other things he is no longer able to do. We need to raise a minimum of $10,000 to get started!

Wow! How blessed we are! Randy is closing in on 1 year with new lungs. We are going to celebrate his Lungiversary by spending time with family and friends.
We want to thank everyone who has prayed for us, donated to us – God Blessed us with wonderful people in our life!

Randy is doing great! He takes approximately 52 pills a day. These are to help keep him health and free from rejection in his lungs, or pneumonia, flu or other illnesses. In addition, he takes a lot of vitamins that he keep his bones strong and helps with other issues that his medicines take from his body.
He still has medical appointments and medicines – especially, the vitamins – that is not covered by insurance.
Thanks for your continued prayers!
