The OBAAT, acronym for One Breath At A Time, Foundation was inspired by 34 year old Lyndsey of Owenton, KY. Lyndsey is the wife of Brad Allnutt, mother of Jayla and bonus mom to Trinity & Clayton.
She was diagnosed with a chronic lung disease, Bronchiectasis, when she was a preteen and spent many days in and out of hospitals growing up. She has never let her disease define who she is as a person nor let it prohibit her dreams of attending nursing school and raising a family.
Lyndsey has been and will continue to be followed by Pulmonary doctors at the University of Kentucky hospital for management and treatment. Recently, she and her family were informed the disease has progressed to the point a double lung transplant will be required in the future. She will begin extensive testing in the next 6 months and a transplant could occur within the next year or two.
This foundation has been started to help off set any cost her and her family may have in the coming weeks, months and even years. Things such as but not limited to:
*Insurance out of pocket deductibles that will be met this year and every year to follow.
*Medication cost (there is an extensive list of medications that insurance will not cover 100% of. These medications will be life-long).
*Travel and lodging for days/nights spent in Lexington for treatment
*Loss of income
The OBAAT Foundation believes no one should face such monumental times alone.
