Gail and Mike Shelby of Eternal Vision

Many of you have been praying for Gail Shelby. An account has now been set up where you can also give money to help this family.

Here is a note from Gail:

Hi my name is Gail Shelby.  I was born with a genetic disease that none of my family had known or dealt with.  I noticed in my very early 40s that it was getting more difficult to breathe after walking a distance or exercise.  My husband and I along with another couple formed a singing ministry and we called it Eternal Vision, singing all over the country.  This year is our 27th year of ministry.  I have not been able to sing or go with the group in the last 2 years.  2014 I spent more time in the hospital than at home.  The disease I have is Alpha One Antitrypsin Deficiency and I have Broncheactisis completely covering my left lung and 3/4 of my right lung.  After my last visit this week from my pulmonologist my lung function had gone from 45 to 31.  It was a huge drop in a short amount of time.  They are submitting my file to Vanderbilt Hospital for a double lung transplant.  I have not been able to work in over 2 years but the doctor bills, hospital bills, radiology and on and on, keep coming in along with our insurance being increased by $300.00 per month.  The estimate for a double lung transplant  is over $90,000.00.  I am scared, my husband seems like he’s carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders trying to keep everything going.  I can’t be left alone so we pay a care taker for me as well.  I have fallen twice and broke my back in 2 places.  I went from owning a photography studio, co-hosting a television show that had been on the air 57 years straight, doing radio and so on.  Now I have to be helped from one room to the next with oxygen 24 hours a day.  Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated.  I have always BELIEVED that God has a perfect plan and I will continue to BELIEVE that.
