Linda Needs Our Help!
Linda Horton is a 59 year old woman who is very ill. Linda’s fight with breathing began 30 years ago when she inhaled an over-the-counter pesticide for ants. She unknowingly inhaled this and was rushed to the hospital with chemical pneumonitis. Since then, Linda has doctored and used medication for her breathing. A few years later, she received the diagnosis of COPD a progressive debilitating disease. Linda has end-stage COPD which requires oxygen, medication, extensive testing and numerous doctor visits. Linda needs a lung transplant; without a lung transplant she will not survive.

I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who has contributed to my fund. I would love to thank each individually but I will have to make it general. Thank you for your prayers, love and support.

I’d like to thank everyone who has donated to this campaign individually, but I do not have access to the information at this moment. So, I will THANK YOU ALL, from the bottom of my heart, in this general note.
You are not only helping Linda financially, you are helping her emotionally, this is such a stressful process, and the added stress of worrying how to pay for it, can be hope crushing. Your support is helping her to focus on the possibilities, rather than the lack of possibilities!
I am a firm believer that focusing on Hope, is a large part of any battle with a health problem, especially a health problem that is this serious. You can find yourself in a state of total despair worrying about finances. I personally understand this, and regret the time I spent worrying about ours while Mark was battling for his life. I could have spent the last few months of his life being a better wife, instead of being a “terrified wife and mother”.
Our friends and family came through in such a major way, that I will spend my life “Paying it Forward”.
I continue to pray that at some point in time money will not be an issue when it comes to saving a life, but in the meantime, I will deal with the current realities, and keep asking for your help by sharing this campaign, the more shares, the more likely it will reach someone else who understands, and is willing to “Pay it Forward”.
