About Me

My photo
I was born with Cystic Fibrosis. I was diagnosed when I was only 2 months old. At the age of 13 I was diagnosed with Cepacia. I am now 32 years old. I am married to my best friend, Bryan. We have been married for over 13 years. In 2007 I was in end stage CF. I was told I was not a candidate for a life saving double lung transplant due to culturing Cepacia. I could not accept that. I found one center who would evaluate me. It was 2000 miles away from home in Pittsburgh, PA. It was there I started to die. After evaluations I had to be put on a ventilator to keep me alive. They decided to list me. On December 10,2007 just 3 days after being listed I received new lungs. I was given a miracle! God had a plan for me, God answered my prayers. It wasn't easy, but it is worth it!

Transplant Games 2012

So I'm going to join team Oklahoma since this is where I'll be calling home for a while :) I have to try to raise $1200 so I can participate that will cover most of my expenses except my airline/travel expenses. SO I will be have items available on my blog to help raise money for myself and my team. I appreciate any donations. Competing in the games is something I have wanted to do since the the minute I learned about them during my transplant recovery back in 2007. . .Please help me get there if you can :)

The Games will be held in Grand Rapids, MI the end of July 2012!!
