Autum Hall, 47, sits in her kitchen after finding out she needs a double lung transplant and will have to move to an apartment two hours away to begin rehab. As an infant, the doctors diagnosed Autum with Idiopathic Bronchiectasis, a rare lung condition in which the lungs’ airways become permanently enlarged. The lungs progressively lose their elasticity and are unable to push out trapped air. Autum’s lungs function around 16 percent. There is no cure for her condition and the cause is unknown.“Once you go through that door [of receiving a transplant], there’s no going back,” Autum said. “[A transplant] is not a complete cure. You’re just trading one set of problems for another.”
