My name is Brandy . I have been married for 18 years and have 3 kids, Chase, Nicholas and Natalie. I have never smoked and I am not a drinker.I was diagnosed in 1999 with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Both of those are auto immune disorders. Both of these diseases have turned on my body and have attacked my lungs. I now have interstital lung disease as ruslut of them attacking my lungs. I have had this for 13 + years. Over the last few years my lungs have gotten worse. I have only 35% use of my lungs. My pulmonary dr has referred me to Vanderebilt University to have a lung transplant. While I have insurance, it will only cover so much. After transplant I have to live there for 3 months. This will be a finacial burden on my family. I am trying to raise money to help cover the potential cost. I am trying to be proactive and get ahead of the game so that when they ask me to prove I can cover these cost I can show them I can. So please help me with this mission. I want to be able to have this transplant and be a real mom to my kids and enjoy life. Thanks and God Bless!
