Sixteen years ago, Amy Prince fought a winning battle against cancer– a Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that was located in her chest cavity. The battle was tough and the chemotherapy and radiation treatments were nearly lethal to her but she came out on top. Now, a decade and a half later, her heart has shown the long-term effects of the chemo treatment and has multiple points of failure. A heart transplant is her only hope for survival.

Amy grew up in Turner, ME and graduated from Leavitt Area High School. She went on to explore her world via Farmington Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, California and finally back to Maine. She is engaged to a wonderful partner, Chris Pillsbury and together they have raised two wonderful children into teenagers. Together, Amy and her family are committed to seeing her through this transplant.

After regaining her voice and ability to eat ice chips (Hooray!), Amy was cleared to leave the ICU to a rehabilitation hospital in early December. Gotta get that strength up if she wants to get home!

It’s been a tough road after the LVAD implant. Amy didn’t recover very well immediately post-surgery and had to remain intubated and under sedation for 5 days. After that, her vocal cords were frozen and she remained without voice or ability to swallow for weeks. Tough fight.
