My name is Morgan Mattix and I am raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with double lung transplantation due to Pulmonary Hypertension. I was diagnosed at the age of 15. Now 24 years old, having exceeded all forms of medication and treatment for my condition the only way for future life expectancy is to receive two new lungs!
I have chosen to Fundraise with Help Hope Live in part because Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Donate Now button.

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to update on my recent progress. On November 8th 2017. I Received my new lungs It has been nothing but challenges since then. The major thing that has been a challenge is not being able to walk. Due to the ecmo machine and the length of the surgery 20+ hours. I am not able to walk. I am relying on a wheelchair & a hospital bed in my home as well as the people around me. Family & friends. I am still going to doctor appointments about every 2 weeks and am doing physical and occupational therapy weekly. It’s been a long hard journey and it’s still going to continue like this for a while more. Thankyou to ALL that have prayed and continue to pray. This girl isn’t giving up.
