2017 Stepping Out Manhattan NY (Tri-State Chapter)

Hope for Prasha


Dear Family and Friends,

This year I received a new life with new lungs from my donor. Scleroderma almost beat me. Took my toe, gave me two right heart failures and lungs failures. Two surgeries to keep me alive till transplant and finally Lungs Transplant saving my life making me free of Oxygen cylinders and Wheelchair. As some wise man said,"I am slow trutle trying to flip from back." My doctors, nurses, PCA's , Pharmacist, therapist, support people from internet, family, friends and my wellwishers all supported my back. And I am walking back in my feet again, breathing freely. Because of you guys, I am able to flip back and swim back in the ocean like tiny turtles. I have a huge battle to find cure to this monster disease.
