Family and friends of Angelica Walsh are raising money to pay for uncovered medical and temporary relocation expenses associated with bilateral lung transplantation. Angelica is currently on the waitlist at University of California San Francisco Medical Center.
Angelica has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis which is a genetic condition that leads to chronic pulmonary infections and results in permanent scarring to the lung tissue. She has battled this disease her entire life while it gradually compromised her body’s ability to absorb needed oxygen from the air she breathes. Currently, her lung function is only about 20% of what a healthy woman her age should have, so she must use supplemental oxygen 24 hours a day. She is also on continuous mechanical ventilation which means she relies on a machine to help her lungs function.

Sorry for the recent lack of updates, but wanted to wait for some positive news….so here it is: Angelica is now ACTIVELY LISTED FOR TRANSPLANT! She has gained some much needed weight to help with post-surgery recovery. Her lung allocation score (LAS) is quite high (70+) on a scale from 1-100 which could mean a call within weeks or even days. Your past support is much appreciated. I am certain it has gotten this far.

Angelica is now stable at UCSF Medical Center. They are going to perform a tracheostomy tomorrow. This will allow her to continue to use the ventilator but without the tube down her throat. It will also get her off of the sedatives and begin sitting up, standing and walking. All things needed to get through a successful transplant.
