“What about COVID and everything, when I catch a cold or COVID, there is just no hope that it would be the end for me.”

Amy added, “I’m pushing to see if I can get on the transplant list. Because there is no cure and there is nothing else they can do for me.

“With the transplant, my age is against me because the results aren’t that good as you get older.”

She said, “If you can get through all of this, you will have a better quality of life and maybe another two or three years.”
