Triumph against Pulmonary Fibrosis

Hello. I am a mother and grandmother. I'm raising funds to help pay for any medical expenses and oxygen therapy that insurance will not cover, as well as living expenses. I am a Phlebotomist of 20+ years, now a Customer Service Agent. But unable to work, due to illness of Pulmonary Fibrosis Lung disease & Lupus disease. After several years of seeking a diagnosis suffering w/ shortness of breath, coughing, reoccurring pneumonia, stamina, unable to walk w/out stopping to rest. etc,. Going to doctor routinely w/out any answers. After a weekend emergency room visit that turned into a hospital stay @ Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Pulmonary Fibrosis was the major diagnosis & this disease has no cure! The lifespan after diagnosis is living another  2 to 5 years w/ possibility of requiring lung transplant. I'm definitely praying for a miracle & have faith of living a longer life than 2-5 years as predicted.  Currently I've been unable to work since Dec.2015 and all funds have been exhausted in light of this disability. I've completed 2 Chemotherapy treatments (my 1st chemotherapy started in March, at VUMC, 2nd in April with 4 more to go) My goal is to be able to pay my doctors, get prescribed medicine filled, continue my mandatory 24/7 oxygen therapy delivery, pay insurance premiums, out of pocket expenses & complete Chemotherapy, while staying on my physician's timeline to continue getting healthy. Unfortunately, this definitely has become a hardship that requires assistance from family and friends. Thank you very much. I'm grateful for your support and time. May you all be blessed beyond measure.  ✉ Sincerely, Dianne Hopkins
