LUNG FORCE Heroes
Due to SECONDHAND SMOKE & POOR AIR QUALITY, Asthma, Pneumonia's, Valley Fever have been apart of my life since eight years old.
In 2011 & 2012 my health took a drastic turn. Lifespan at the time was 3 to 5 years. I now live with a reconstructive airway, a partial right lung and three missing ribs. Learning how to breathe again was a difficult challenge especially with your young children who become your caregivers. Special thanks to my pulmonologist for believing in his instincts & who's been best primary care over five years, I am ALIVE passed the mark!
That's why I participate in the LUNG FORCE Walk.
