Born with a rare metabolic disease, Terri was frequently in the hospital as a child. She thinks about her donor every day.
I volunteered to be evaluated and when I learned I was eligible to donate, it was truly one of the happiest moments of my life.
Many of us did die from IPF but because of two incredibly loving families our mother was spared the loss of two more children. Without these transplants, our life expectancies were no more than three to four months.
