LUNG FORCE Heroes
In 2009, I caught a respiratory virus. I was sick for 2 months and ended up in hospital with an enlarged heart - It was keeping me going! I lost 15% of my lung sacs and was diagnosed with asthma. It took me a month to heal enough to walk from the car to work. I am now compliant on daily meds - now I RUN! I show horses, walk my dog, and enjoy breathing!
