I have faced many hurdles that I have had to overcome in my life. My journey with breast cancer has been my downfall. I thought with Chemo and Radiation I was good to go. However I developed Pulmonary Fibrosis and on top of that then I developed Parkinson’s disease. I guess you could say my plate is full. Now the Radiation has caused scarring on my lungs. So unless I can get a lung transplant the Doctor gives me about a year as with the fibrosis I have gone downhill rapidly. My hopes when I moved to Arizona I would feel better, I guess that is not to be.
What I am looking for now is some quality of life and I hope with the help of others I will get just that. I need a scooter so that I am able to get around. I also need a portable oxygenator. Lastly I need help with my medications.
At this time I am hoping that I will be a candidate for a lung transplant, I will have some positive news in the next few weeks. Even that will be a long shot with all my medical problems. Hopefully with the generosity of family and friends I will have a year of comfort
