Sponsor a CF Patient

Cystic Fibrosis Patient Suzanne Needs a Sponsor – can you help?

Here is her situation:

Suzanne is a 22-year-old woman who has Cystic Fibrosis and is currently being tested to qualify for a lung transplant. Two years ago her lung health began to decline which caused her to need to leave her employment. She was exhausted working and was not able to keep up with the 5 hours of breathing treatments and the physical therapy she needed to attempt to stay out of the hospital. Her doctors suggested that she leave employment to better care for her failing health. She quickly qualified for Social Security Disability Payments but because she had only worked a few years she only qualified for $940 per month in Social Security Income. She lives in a small apartment with a friend that pays half the rent of $400. She has a car payment (including insurance) of $160, and her co-pays for medications and doctor visits usually amount to $230 each month. This leaves her with about $150 each month ($37.50 each week) for groceries, gasoline, clothing, and emergency savings.

Suzanne currently receives $50 each month from Help One Love One but her food needs are still not completely met at this financial level. She needs $100 additional dollars each month from our nutrition program to help her comfortably manage her caloric needs.

Suzanne is 15 pounds underweight. When people who have Cystic Fibrosis are underweight it causes their lung function to drop. Increasing weight to normal ranges usually increases lung function and helps to decrease lung infections in CF patients. Your monthly donation of any amount will help Suzanne gain the weight she needs so she can qualify for her lung transplant. With a lung transplant she has the hope of being able to regain her health and return to her career so she can care for herself in the coming years.
