This story was brought to my attention by a close friend of mine. Through the chain of friendship and power of support, I am convicted to pay it forward.
Please take a moment to read Jenn's compelling letter which introduces her cousin, Ashley. Ashley is a proactive hard working woman whom dispite her cystic fibrosis, has achieved a college education and earned herself a steady career. Through her struggles to live a reasonable level of normalcy in her life - Ashley has forfeited her Disablility and Social Security benefits which would have allowed her access to a much needed lung transplant. But because she was able to achieve a steady career - she is left with no help and was rejected from the donor list due to insurance restrictions. Apparently, your insurance companies can not dictate your life expectancy...
Please visit Ashley's blog "Gift of Breathing" and show her your support.
Keep Ashley Kennen Breathing is linked on her sidebar.
