And here is Joanne 570 days after her double lung transplant... at 67, back to her regular weight of 110 lbs or 52 kgs!!! Nothing holds her back now! 900 days after that double lung transplant, she ran her first half-marathon at 68 Nov 18  2019 and plans to run a half-marathon every 3 months!!

​Here is Joanne just 2 months before she decided she just had to get on the Lung Transplant Waiting List... only 72 lbs or 33 kgs...barely able to take 2 steps without resting many long moments... breathless none-stop... 

And, here Joanne is 390 days after her double lung transplant (June, 2018)... at 66.  You bet she thoroughly enjoys even the most mundane activities -- vacuuming, grocery-shopping, cooking... because for 1,187 she was banned from that.  And, she's back to her 1-3/4 hours of fitness 7 days-a-week:  60 minutes of toning, 30 mins jogging or stationary bike and 20 minutes of Yoga.  You bet she never skips her morning prayers and meditation. 

After 1,187 days of an  End Stage Lung Disease, Joanne was gifted with a second chance at life.  Her donor and the donor family are definitely her heroes.  Here she is 35 days after her 6-hour double lung transplant surgery, in 2017.  As Fate would have it, she and her two perfectly healthy new lungs got together on a Sunday... Joanne was also born on a Sunday....
