Rebecca was born with PCD (Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia), a hereditary lung disorder. Quite the athlete during childhood in several sports, she has been very competitive athletically while not knowing she was born with PCD.
It wasn’t until age 29, that she and her family were able to obtain an accurate diagnosis, at the National Institutes of Health. There, she became familiar with PCD, to give a name to the destructive presence in her lungs and resulting bronchiectasis.
From many outstanding medical professionals, Rebecca has been able to gain courage, confidence and comfort in knowing that lung transplant was an option. We invite you to learn more about Rebecca’s journey to better health, and encourage her to continue “Fighting for Air”, as she has willingly described in her blog, of which many of you are aware.
Thank you in advance, for your words of kindness, your friendship, and your prayers for her good health. We are so grateful for that!
