Hello Everyone I'm Kerri-Ann Grainger Hebshie's daughter. My dad was a member of ur group. My father passed away July 16 from stage 4 copd. It's horrible seeing ur loved one struggling everyday to breathe. My dad was my hero as sick as he was he always tried to help others and I wanna continue to get his story and video out there so it can help others to quit smoking. I know that is what my father would want me to do. My dad fought everyday to stay alive because he wanted to live. He ended up on the ventilator. Even on the ventilator he fought. I said Daddy, can u hear me? I want you to know I love you so much and I want you to keep fighting and I said if u can hear me squeeze my hand and he squeezed it so tight. The next day the dr told us what we already knew that he would never come off the ventilator and we had to make a decision. It was the hardest decision my mom and i had to make. We knew in our heart that keeping my dad alive like that was inhumane even though it was so hard to let him go. The next day they removed the ventilator. They removed the ventilator at noon time i saw my father take his two last breathes and pass away. It was the worse feeling i ever experienced seeing my dad on the ventilator and there was nothing I could do to save him. If i could of i would of gave him my lungs. Please don't smoke. Not only does copd effect the person with it, it also effects the loved ones caring for them. Smoking kills. If you go to YouTube type Grainger Hebshie interview with my grandfather u will see my father's story. The video was made by my daughter for a college project. My dad just wanted to help others. God bless you all and ur families.
