The Breath of the Almighty gives me life Job 33-4b Barbara Hendricks (D'Anna) Barbara, 51 yrs old, has been fighting for 15 years with the debilitating disease of Scleroderma. This disease is an autoimmune disease that causes the over production of collagen which results in scar tissue throughout the body. Barbara has the most severe type which is both her skin and systemic. Amazing and gifted team of Scleroderma specialists lead by Dr Jiménez at Jefferson University have been able to, through medications, stabilize and even reverse some of the skin involvement that the Scleroderma had caused and save Barbara's life. The disease is in remission....God is Good! Even though the Scleroderma is under control, it has taken it's toll on her lungs. Barbara has been told she needs a double Lung Transplant because the Pulmonory Hypertension as a result of Scleroderma has gotten worse. This life saving procedure will be taking place at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Another mountain to climb...another valley to walk through--all being done with the Mercy, Love, Strength, and Grace of God. Here we are, Barbara's family asking for your prayers and support. Prayers for: Barbara and a successful surgery and Healing! Doug: His bravery and strength as he takes on all the responsibilities of caring for his family and walks his wife through the most difficult season of their lives. Tessa: This sweet 13 year old who will be watching her mom going through the process of choosing life as best as she can. For a double portion of grace and courage. Barbara's family: As we position ourselves to serve our sweet Barbara in any and every way necessary to help her move this mountain with her hands held high--praising her God--because our faith will remain...God is Good--no matter what. The other request is to help financially offset the cost of the medical expenses, co-pays, and anything else that is incurred during the process of receiving this amazing gift of life. Thank you from the deepest part of our hearts. #Scleroderma#Organ donation #Pulmonory Hypertension #TempleLungTransplantTeam#JeffersonHospitalSclerodermaTeamandPulmonoryHeartTeam#TeamHendricks❤️#MyCareTeam❤️#MYGOD!
