I am very lucky to be alive after a double-lung transplant in July 2006. I suffered the rarest lung disease called - Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (Lam). My illness never got me down..even though there were very hard times. I just kept fighting for my life n trying to breathe each time my lung collapsed (total 15 times). I used to be on 24 hr oxygen to help me breathe and also wheelchair bound. At one stage I ended up on life support(coma) for many weeks, and having to learn how to walk again with a zimaframe (no joke)- and start to re-build my life/confidence/strength up. I am a very positive individual..and I want to enjoy my life with the extension this transplant has given me..WOOHOO!!!! My blog details my life post transplant and all that I set out to achieve, and campaign work to raise awareness of LAM and being an Organ Donor.
