Rosemary Get Well Fund

Rosemary Noonan was diagnosed with Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency and has been waiting for a lung transplant for over 7 years!  That's over 2555    days of waiting with suitcase packed and hoping each phone call is the call from Boston that a match has been made.  She has been attached to an oxygen tank and her quality of life has been basically exercising for 1/2 hr. a day pedaling a bicycle to exercise her lungs, and then spending most of the day on the couch because she was exhausted from her exercise.  She's also had to stay within 4 hrs. of Boston AT ALL TIMES! 
    This woman is the most caring, considerate person I have ever met.  She ALWAYS puts other people before her own needs.  I can't believe how positive she has remained thoughout this horrible ordeal.  She wasn't even able to attend either of her parent's funerals due to her disease.  
    The call finally came Tues. Oct. 17th, and she finally got lungs on the 18th!  Now begins the financial burden that is basically overwhelming.....She will need to take 65 pills a day for the first month after surgery.  She's on Medicare so we know that many of her medications won't be covered, say nothing of the expenses from surgery!  She will need to go to Boston once a week for a year. That means Dennis will need to take time off from work so he won't be paid, hotel expenses, gas etc.  SHE NEEDS OUR HELP!  Please consider any size donation.   Thank you in advance for your contribution!
