Family of Sue Van Nostrand is raising money to cover living expenses post lung transplant.

About 3 years ago my mother, Sue (Estridge) Coots/Van Nostrand was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. This disease causes the lung tissue to become damaged and scarred which causes breathing to become more and more difficult. Life Expectancy after a diagnosis is 3 - 5 years. For the last 6 months, mom has been going through the steps to be placed on a lung transplant list through the Cleveland Clinic. The last hurdle we have to cross, before she can officially be placed on the list, is to show that we have at least $5400 in an account for her use. This money will cover her living expenses in Cleveland (she has to stay there for 6 weeks after being released from the hospital) and 2 medical machines she must have, but insurance does not cover. As of her last pulmonary function test, her disease is progressing at a rapid rate, so the need to get her on the list is urgent. We need our mom just a little longer.
