Debby's fund for better lungs

February 2016 changed my life forever.  I was diagnosed with IPF.   Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a debilitating and fatal disease. IPF is a progressive disease, that over time lung scarring leads to progressive restriction in breathing and patients die from respiratory failure. The median survival time from diagnosis is two to five years. IPF has a higher mortality than many other malignancies, including pancreatic, lung and liver cancer.

There has been no real treatment for IPF, except some meds to ease the symptoms and oxygen, until very recently!  New research has allowed Stem Cell Transplant to slow down the progression of the disease. This process is not covered by insurance and the cost is  $12,000.  

If people help me raise the needed money, I can get a stem cell transplant that could allow me many more years to live than expected.  This disease can flare up and cause a serious set back, sometimes leading to death.  Even a small amount toward the goal helps.  With enough of those I can reach the goal.  If I can achieve this goal by August 9th I can get this for $10,000 before an increase in cost.  PLEASE HELP!  and if you can't donate, please pray for a miracle for me.
