My Story

Kadi, diagnosed at 4 months old, never got really bad sick until 4 years ago, hospitalized many times between now and then. she has had plenty of surgerys but her transplant will be a major one and a big impact on her life it will change her life with alot of difference; more medications, no vest (a machine that is used to shake the mess out of her), no feedings by g-tube (thing in her stomach that is used to give her nutrition and gaining weight), no oxygen, no bad coughs with mucus, no port (a permanent IV access under the skin), most importantly she will be able to breathe!. She's now on 30 medications to maintain her life. She really hasnt beent to school in 4 years because of her illness and constant infections. Its been hard but we're making it through best we can with Gods help!. Her goals are to outrun and outswim her brothers, breathe better, and finally get a good nights sleep. We also have extra help from her boyfriend Chris.
