Dear Joanne
She may have an underlying problem that makes her more prone to getting pneumonia, like emphysema, allergies, asthma or an immune disorder. I won't be able to advise without having all the information. Maybe the solution will be to have her vaccinated against pneumonia - but her own doctor will be able to give the best advise.
