Story

This lady is an absolute inspiration and I am trying to raise money to finally give her the holiday, she could have once only ever dreamt of.
23 years ago at the age of 4 she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a life limiting condition affecting the respiratory and digestive system. She has spent her whole life lighting up the lives of everyone around her, and after an extremely difficult 5 years, and defying all odds when doctors didn't think she would make it, she has recently been given a second chance after undergoing a double lung transplant (7 weeks ago). This lady required oxygen regularly as a breathing aid for the last three years to the point she was dependent on it for 20 hours a day. Despite this she still worked her 3-4 hourly shifts at her local jewellers with the determination to remain independent up until being taken into hospital 6 weeks prior to her transplant.
She is such an inspirational woman and even with her illness she has continuously proved to be so amazingly strong and positive her whole life. She has always put her friends and family's feelings and needs before her own. Despite her deteriorating condition, she never failed to have a smile on her face to ensure every moment was spent lighting up the lives of those around her simply by just being her. Every moment in the company of friends and family she has spent making us smile, making us have hope, and most of all giving us happiness..... she is living, BREATHING, proof angels do exist and I would love nothing more than to give something back to my best friend... my world!
This transplant is her second chance....... it will not cure her of this condition, but she has finally been given the chance to enjoy the years ahead of her. I will spend the rest of my days trying to give back the love and care she has shown to everyone around her. She is a diamond..... of the rarest kind ❤️❤️❤️ and after all she has been through she deserves to finally make this one dream a reality.
