double lung transplant

Hello, my name is Terry Campbell and have been a resident of Newton, North Carolina for the last 17 years. My husband and I moved here from New York with our three children, Ryann, Jamie and Ben.

I have been diagnosed with C.O.P.D., which stands for chronic, obstructive, pulmonary disease. I have been on oxygen  24/7 for the past 7 years.  My condition has progressed to end-stage C.O.P.D.  As this disease only gets worse, I  am now advised  from the transplant team that I am nearing the window for  the double lung transplant. I have raised the amount needed for the preliminary funding by the generosity of so many friends, that I have no words to express my gratitude.

The transplant related expenses are great and my insurance doesn't cover everything that is needed for  pre-surgery and post-surgery.  The only way I can proceed with the transplant is to start a fund-raising campaign again to help raise the $10,000 that Duke Medical Center requires to secure my part in the process.

A donation of any size would bring me one breath closer to to reaching my goal. I thank you so very much for your time and thoughtfulness. Please feel free to leave a message of any kind.  I would love to hear from you!

If you or anyone you know is willing and able to help with the lung transplant process,  you can do so by using the website which is secured by paypal or make your donation by check to the Terry Campbell Lung Transplant Fund at the First Citizens Bank, address listed below:

Thank you again, Terry Campbell
