My bestsis(best friend, like a sister) desperately needs a double lung transplant. Her lungs are only functioning at 16% and very little airflow making it extremely difficult to breath. She has also been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. Doctors have told there is nothing else they can do for her except the transplant. Insurance will only cover so much. The hospitals that would do the transplant are located out of state. Money is needed to cover at best 9 months away from home, which means renting an apartment or hotel fees, as well as co-pays, travel expenses, medications not covered by insurance and other out of pocket expenses.
Junie is one of the most caring people I know. She's always trying to help people even in her weakened condition. She is selfless, always willing to lend an ear to those that need it even when she herself is in pain. When I first met Junie she was full of energy. Now she can't even walk from her bedroom to the bathroom without getting out of breath and wheezing. You can see from the photos the affect this disease has had on her. The photos of her in the blue dress are from when she was healthy. She had a glow and was full of energy. Please donate and help Junie get back to her former glowing, energetic self. I know that with new lungs and the ability to breath properly again she will be able to help even more people which gives her great joy.
Hospitals insist that patients have enough money set aside to cover the above mentioned expenses before they will even be considered for the transplant list. Please help Junie win this fight!
