LUNGS 4 TYLER

$7,950 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 77 people in 11 months

Hello everyone let me start by saying thank you for taking the time out of your day to even read this. I was born with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis in which the salt proteins in my body do not break down the thick mucus allowing it to build up and essentially drown me from the inside. I was diagnosed at 6 months old after almost losing my life twice. Over the years Cystic Fibrosis gets worse and worse and there is currently no known cure. There is however a delay button if you will, and thats by gettting a lung transplant. I was not expected to live past 25 years old and due to me being a stubborn active young boy I proved them wrong, and here I am at 30 still working out but with a little more trouble these days. So this is where I need everyone elses help in proving them wrong again and showing them that the average life span after transplant will surpass 5 years. 1 out of 2 patients after transplant are still living beyond the expected 5 years. So I need help with financing all the medicine i'll be taking for the rest of my life which will be 20-25 different medicines, i'll need help with living expenses for the first year after transplant as i wont be able to work at all for about 6 months as i recover and learn how to breathe again. With your help i'll be able to maintain independence as I rebuild my body and my life and get back to normalcy. I will be using the money for the following: Medicine, rent, car payments, insurance, utilities, cleaning services to prevent from infection from bacteria. My immune system will be drastically suppressed in order to keep my body from rejecting the new lungs so it is imperative i maintain a sterile environment. For those of you who consider donating to this cause there is no way for me to thank you enough so instead i'll show you by taking this new life you've given me and live it to the fullest and somehow help others that may be in a similar situation and pay it forward as you have. So thank you again.
-Tyler Morgan

I am one month post transplant of a bilateral lung transplant. Have u applied for social security disability and Medicare? These will help pay for mostly everything. Yes i still need help. But there also is hospital grants . They will work with you on all medications. You will never go without a medication as long as you pay at least 5 dollars a month. Don't get discouraged. It will all work out!
