Celebrating my 4th lungaversary and raising organ donation awareness

My Story

My name is Samantha and I had a double lung transplant on August 3rd 2019. I was very very ill and in the ICU unit for some time before my transplant, Drs were not giving me much time without a transplant. I was born with an immune deficiency that destroyed my lungs over the years and caused bronchiactisis. I could not even get out of bed and stand on my own 2 feet before transplant. But thanks to my donor I am now living a healthy life we are almost at the 5 year mark and my PFT ‘s were the best they have ever been last month and everything is looking great. I can never repay my donor family for deciding to donate their loved one’s organs!
