Ashleigh’s Story

Site created on March 31, 2018

My name is Ashleigh and I am 24 years old. I am from Louisiana and currently study Biblical and Theological Studies at North Central University in downtown Minneapolis. I was born with a genetic lung disease that has slowly weakened my lungs and am now receiving a double lung transplant! The hope is that after surgery I will be able to breathe like never before and have a prolonged life! 
Follow along on my journey. :)

Journal entry by Gwyneth Mcintyre

Ashleigh was discharged from the hospital this afternoon! She is holding down all her meds.

Her nausea is under control and her appetite is increasing. They have her on around the clock feeds through her peg tube to regain the some of the weight she lost.
