Did you know... RA Fact:"The lung problems most often linked to rheumatoid arthritis include: Scarring within the lungs. Scarring related to long-term inflammation (interstitial lung disease) may cause shortness of breath." Melody died on Aug. 3rd. More ...
Melody Lambert Long lost her month long intense battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis Lung (RA Lung) and all hope for a Lung Transplant to survive, at the age of 49. No life insurance, no funds remaining in bank accounts. Her family needs your help for a couple of reasons: (1) to provide a Celebration of Life Memorial (2) continue a legacy memorial in her name to provide support for others struggling with this auto-immune disease.

An estimated 1.3 million people in the United States have RA—that’s almost 1 percent of the nation’s adult population. There are nearly three times as many women as men with the disease. In women, RA most commonly begins between the ages of 30 and 60.

Evidence shows that early diagnosis, early treatment, and aggressive treatment to put the disease into remission is the best means of avoiding joint destruction, organ damage and disability.

The family is requesting a monetary donation in lieu of flowers. Thank you for your love and support!
