Angelica Needs Your Help
Family and friends of Angelica Walsh are raising money to pay for uncovered medical and temporary relocation expenses associated with bilateral lung transplantation. Angelica was initially on the waitlist at University of California San Francisco Medical Center. However, after they determined that a fungal infection made transplant too risky, they took her off the list and said that she would most likely spend the rest of her life on a ventilator.

Thank you all for the support. Angelica is doing great! After her transplant in St. Louis (Barnes Jewish has the best lung team on the globe, by the way), she went through a pretty tough 3 month recovery/rehabilitation period before being released by her doctors to go home. In late August, we flew back to San Diego, CA in time for our daughter, Annie, to start school.
Now, 6 months post-transplant and Angelica is doing great! Going to the gym, walking, playing with our daughter–all without a pesky oxygen tank or machine. We will head back to St. Louis this month for a bronchoscopy just to make sure there are no signs of rejection or other complications.
Truly miraculous support by all of our friends, family, friends of friends, friends of family. Please reach out to us if you are in the San Diego Area. We’d love to personally hug the angels who were so generous when we needed help. “You da real MVPs”

About 6 weeks post-transplant and Angelica is doing exceptionally well! Although the fungal infection still presents a risk and therefore requires some additional preventative medications, the doctors think she is beyond the critical window where the fungus would have most likely spread and caused severe complications. Thank you everyone for your generosity and prayers.
