My Journey

Welcome to my page! COTA is an amazing organization and have already shown so much love! Jordan, my husband and I, are having a rough time paying for all of my medications, most of the important ones are Specialty and very expensive, and COTA immediately stepped in to help us cover what they could to help us just get by. Not to mention pricey prescriptions but hospital/clinic visits and my children's daycare. I am trying to be strong and stay as healthy as possible so I can watch my girls grow up to be amazing women! Right now I am currently active on the top of the double lung transplant list at The University of Minnesota, Fairview, for a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis.. With all of the costs that come along with Cystic Fibrosis, one of the most frustrating is not knowing one month from another, if we will have money to afford my medications, AND put food on the table. My goal is to raise money to take a small burden off of my families shoulders, before, during and after my transplant.

We are currently living in Omaha, Nebraska.! I am trying to gain as much weight as possible so I will have an easier recovery from my transplant. It's hard to focus on your health when you are so stressed out with everything else life brings you, but I know the harder I fight, the better my life and my children's life will be. The whole point of life is to live it to your fullest and do it with the people that you love, and BE HAPPY!!
