Double Lung Transplant/Medical Bill

Double Lung Transplant. I am a 45 yr old single mom of 11 yr old daughter who came down with a rare lung condition an Autoimmune Disease called Eosinophilic Pneumonia in 2005 and had to start taking the medication Prednisone to allow me to breathe. Well I resumed a pretty normal life until a few years ago and it took me to a bad place where my lungs were effected so bad that from taking the Prednisone so long it caused hardening of my lungs and have me COPD which put me on oxygen 24/7 and my working and driving privileges were taken away by my Pulmonologist. I spent 2017 in hospital practically the entire year. I worked w/the University of Miami Jackson Memorial to get on the transplant list because I was all of a sudden told I need new lungs. Well I went through so many tests down there that we very hard and got down to needing only 3 more and a local hospital here in PBCounty dropped me in 11/17 and broke my pelvis fractured my Lumbar back L1-L5 and caused internal bleeding so I then had to get blood transfusions for their mistake and wear a custom brace and then discharged to a rehab instead of home so I could be able to walk again and heal more so I was away from my child for 6 weeks. Well then Miami sort of then decided they may not do the transplant because of my strength and what the hospital did to me. I then went into same hospital in 3/18 for breathing difficulty and they tried to put a pick line in me and missed and punctured a main artery and had to rush me to the OR so the surgeon could stop me from hemorrhaging. He had to perform CPR and then break 2 ribs and place over 40 staples across my chest. Again another accident the hospital caused and I again had to then go directly to a rehab for 3 weeks and not be home w/my daughter. I have a terrible scar from that and I wouldn't of had it on my chest if it wasn’t for the hospital’s mistake. I have so many hospital bills and need to get new lungs Which I pray for everyday. I get around w/a walker and carrying my oxygen in it because it is too heavy.  I have to sleep in a recliner chair not a bed and wear a special breathing machine at night too. I miss my old life and my daughter does too. It’s miserable and I need to have $ for my medical expenses and my lung transplant in which they can call me anytime I wouldn’t know when they have a set that’s a match and I have to go so...if you can have a heart to try and help me I would be absolutely greatful for any help you can give. I thank you in advance. Love, Charity
