An Austrailian woman has been given a matter of days to live after her body rejected a double lung transplant she had two years ago.
Make-up artist Nardya Miller, 25, from Brisbane, underwent the operation in 2014 after suffering from cystic fibrosis her entire life. She says she was ‘sick of fighting a never-ending battle.’
The organs donated for Nardya were unfortunately rejected by her body.
“Please I beg you to live your life to the absolute fullest,” she writes in an Instagram post.
Her cousin, Tachae Douglas-Miller has started a GoFundMe to make sure Nardya’s fiancé, Liam Fitzgerald, doesn’t end up in debt.
“Her whole life Nardya has been in and out of hospital, missing birthdays, Christmas, and milestones,” she wrote.
Speaking about the moment Nardya decided to undergo a double lung transplant, Tachae said, “She was sick of not being able to breathe, and sick of fighting a never ending battle.”
On Wednesday, Nardya was told she has only one week to live.
She wrote: “Maybe I’ve known you my whole life, maybe I’ve known you for 10 years, maybe I’ve known you for only a short while, but in just over a week I will never know you again, I will never see your face again, I will never talk to you, touch you, hold you, ever again.
“But I will always love you, and the friendships we built, and the memories we made.
“Things do not always turn out how you plan in life, there are some really huge things that I will never have, places I’ll never go and things I’ll never live to see. But I’ll be watching. Always. Smiling. Because I was here.
“I will never give up. As I never have. Now I’m just simply letting go.”
“And please I beg you to live your life to the absolute fullest. -N x.”
So far, the GoFundMe account has raised $21,000, exceeding the $10,000 target and then some.
