|Transplant Type - Double Lung|
In 1998, after suffering from a lung infection, she was diagnosed with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, a genetic disorder that has caused severe damage to her lungs. Sadly, this condition also afflicts her brother.
On March 17th 2014 Andrea received her lungs! She is recovery very well. getting stronger at rehab and working hard to enable her to go home to Georgia for a few weeks. The amount and cost of the medication to fend off rejection is astrinomical.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to NFT in honor of Andrea. If you'd prefer to send your gift by mail, please send it to the NFT Georgia Transplant Fund, 5350 Poplar Avenue, Suite 430, Memphis, TN 38119. Please be sure to write "in honor of Andrea Hughes Maechtle" on the memo line.
Thank you for your generosity!
