Nicole: Take the Time You Need to Heal

Temporarily turning over “care and feeding” of her only child to his grandparents helped heal Nicole Wills of Cramerton, NC, after complications from pulmonary fibrosis catapulted her toward a double lung transplant in 2016.

“It went from ‘I had a bit of a lung issue’ to an emergency,” Nicole said. “Friends had seen me out walking, and they couldn’t believe what was going on.”
