Lydia Needs Your Help

Lydia Burton is a 58 year-old loving mother and grandmother, and her adorable grandkids are her pride and joy. Fifteen years ago, Lydia was very active and in the prime of her life. She loved to dance, held a full-time job and was always on the go! One day while she was on her way to work, Lydia ran to catch the bus and all of a sudden wasn’t able to breathe. She went to the hospital and was diagnosed with asthma, and after a breathing treatment she felt better and went home. A couple of weeks later, the same thing happened again and with further testing, the doctors discovered Lydia had an advanced case of emphysema. She was eventually diagnosed with COPD and she now relies on full time oxygen just to be able to breathe. With a compromised immune system, the slightest of illnesses will potentially put Lydia in the hospital, as her lungs have deteriorated and she continues to struggle to breathe. Her physicians have now informed her that without a lifesaving lung transplant, Lydia’s life expectancy is only a few more years, and she will quickly run out of options.
