Everyone has dream. Today, we are sharing the amazing dream story of our very own ‪#‎BUCKITDREAMER‬ Brenda Fernandez & her husband, Jose Fernandez, Sr. Jose spent 159 days in the hospital waiting for not only a heart transplant, but a double-lung transplant. In this short video, he explains how University of MD Medical Center doctors supported him, and his wife, throughout his stay. His one dream while being in the hospital for over 100 days was to go outside and breathe fresh air. Thank you UMMC for all that you have done to make Jose’s dream come true. Brenda & Jose are in our thoughts. <3

Jose Fernandez, Sr. spent months trying to figure out what was wrong with his heart.  Outside doctors gave him prescription after prescription, but nothing ever helped. After he was accurately diagnosed at UMMC, Jose awaited a donor heart for a transplant.  Then, he was diagnosed with idiopathic lung fibrosis, and spent 159 days straight in the hospital waiting for a heart and double lung transplant. Eventually he got his wish.
