Sherry Hurst:
“I Plan to Celebrate My 100th Birthday!”

Sherry Hurst, Lubbock, Texas

Okay. Here’s what I’ve come to realize about everything that has happened regarding my health since late last year. I went to see a pulmonologist about what I could do in order to be able to travel.

I was having to spend 16 to 18 hours a day in the “tank” (my iron lung), and I could manage about 5 to 6 hours in my wheelchair. I try to stay as active as possible in advocacy for elder, education, homeless and, of course, disability issues.
