On October 14th, 2017-Elisa Calderon received a dual-lung transplant. Receiving a call at 2:30 am that a match had been found, packing a camping bag she had laying around with some clothes and rushed to the hospital. Before rushing out the door-she lay next to her special needs son Josias and prayed over him: her mission was to get well for herself so she could be a better parent to Josias.
Raising a special needs child as a single mother was never a burden for Elisa. She sees it as a gift from God because she has the heart and nobleness to care for such a special being. As she lays in recovery, her focus continues to be bettering herself for her son, never losing sight of his needs and making sure he’s ok even though she is going through tremendous obstacles.
