Beth (left) writes, “Transplant is a marathon, not a sprint. It took my husband Tony (right) 5 years to get a doctor to refer him for his double lung transplant. We waited 6 months for the first appointment and it took another 6 months to go through pre-transplant assessment. At 3 months, our time on the waiting list was short. We are now 2 years out and just now regaining our physical, emotional and financial footing. And my husband is here to rebuild.
Transplants cannot happen without an army of heroes at every step: family, friends and countless healthcare staff. It’s a journey that does not begin without the Donor and Families who say ‘yes’.”
