I was born with Kartagener's Syndrome. I was sick quite often as a child and as I got older my health began go deteriate rapidly. On May 3, 2008 I received the gift of life with a double lung transplant at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. Life was great for three and a half years until November of 2011 when I went into rejection rather quickly. Fortunately, the doctors at St. Joe's approved for me to have another transplant. That surgery was on December 14, 2011. I am doubly blessed! The team at St. Joe's is spectacular and I am very lucky to have them. I also would not have been able to make it through all of this without the support of my husband, children and all my family and friends.
