Help Nancy Baker get some new lungs

Nancy Baker is a vibrant, young, 53 year old woman who has managed to successfully raise an amazing son to be a fine young man currently serving his country in the armed forces. She did all this, as a single mom on not much. Nancy is a very private and proud woman, so it is not in her nature to ask, but so many people in her life have been a part of this journey, along side her, that she felt that she wanted to honor their prayers, help, well wishes, and any other support that they have provided by putting up this page. And the journey continues.  Now, when she should be just getting over empty nest syndrome and learning to enjoy and embrace her well deserved life of being the free spirit that she is, the diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Pulmonary Fibrosis (literally "scarring of the lungs") is a respiratory disease in which scars are formed in the lung tissues. This is a progressive disease that eventually leads to the lungs shutting down completely. I want to state emphatically, that Nancy has never been a smoker! While they are not exactly sure of how this happened to her, the doctors believe it is the result of her rumatory arthritis auto immune attacking her lungs. Nancy's breathing is so labored now that she is on oxygen 2/3rds of the time and that time is running out. She is blessed in the fact that she is an excellent candidate for 2 new lungs (yes she needs both)! I'm asking you today, with all that's going on in the world right now, take a minute, think and know that you can do something to help someone, so close, right now!No amount is too small. It all adds up. Please give. Time is of the essence and any donation amount is appreciated. Thank you for your support but first and foremost Nancy wants to thank and give God all the glory. They say that He will never give you more than you can handle. We're counting on it!
