Together we are stronger

Personal message

Until Martie's new lungs arrive, the only way to keep up with the progressive, degenerative nature of Pulmonary Hypertension is to increase Martie's imported IV medication. This medication is proving to be spectacular, keeping her off the heart transplant list so that she only needs a double lung transplant. 

Please help us continuing to crowdfund Martie's 20% co-payment of $2200 a month, by making small, repeat donations. 

Because maybe you too are not out of shape. Maybe your lungs are dying and you just don't know it yet.

Medication for a rare disease is extremely expensive, even with excellent private health insurance. Of the 17 internationally approved treatment methods for pulmonary hypertension only 1 is available in South Africa. As the disease progresses, more medication and combinations of medication is needed to help get the patient to their double lung transplant in the best possible physical condition they can be in to survive the transplant.
