This is a fund to raise money for a double lung transplant for Peggy Winschel.

I was diagnosed with polymyositis in 2005.Then not long after I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. I have already lasted the estimate of 2 to 5 yrs but it has finally caught up to me. I have to go for all the tests that precede a lung transplant. It is really scary time for us.
My husband is my only support team. He is going to have to be the care giver which I'm sure will not be easy. He is the only one that brings in a paycheck and we have no idea how long he will be out of work. Like everyone else we have to support a household in Linden but will be told to relocate to Durham when they are ready for me.
The relocation is going to cause me a lot of grief much more than the operation. We have 5 dogs and 3 cats that we have rescued and we will have to find boarding for 2 to 4 months and that is if all goes well. We were never able to have children so these are children.
Our insurance will cover most of the operation but our daily expenses, medicines, transportation and boarding for our pets will not be covered.
