My life changed forever in 2010 when the Pulmonologist told me I had Pulmonary Fibrosis. He explained to me the lung tissue becomes scarred and over time, as the scarring becomes thicker and more widespread, the lungs lose their ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream as a result, patients become short of breath and the brain and vital organs are deprived of the oxygen necessary for survival. The only treatment is a lung transplant. His words shook me to my core and then I realized the journey had only begun. I come from a long line of determined, diligent, resilient, stubborn ancestors. I am thankful for this because I don't know how you would get through this journey if you did not possess these qualities. Also I am surrounded by warm, loving supportive people who make my journey so much easier. Through their prayers, hugs, words of encouragement and generosity I continue on.
