Cindy Alford was devastated to learn she was diagnosed with an incurable and fatal lung disease, known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or IPF. IPF is a progressive and generally fatal disease of the lungs characterized by scarring and thickening of the lung’s lining, causing an irreversible loss of the tissue’s ability to transport oxygen. It has been six years since her diagnosis, however two months ago Cindy learned that her condition has progressed, and her lungs have deteriorated. Without a lifesaving lung transplant, Cindy will rely on full-time oxygen and her time will eventually run out. Cindy desperately needs your help!
Cindy is the loving mother of three wonderful sons and eight loving grandchildren. Naturally, her greatest joy is spending time with her family. She has spent her life working hard to raise her children, and nurturing them with strong Christian values. Cindy is an active member of her church, and has always spent her time and energy helping others. She is now retired after spending many years working for the Alabama Highway Department, and later as a realtor. However, due to her advanced lung disease and difficulty breathing, Cindy is unable to work. More than ever, Cindy is excited to receive a lung transplant, and the telephone call that will save her life.
