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.

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.

Angelica got her lungs! After being taken off the list at UCSF in San Francisco for what they deemed to be a high risk fungal infection, we were accepted by Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. We flew here via air ambulance on 12 May, were listed on 16 May, and Angelica went into surgery on 23 May (4 days after her birthday). She is recovering in the cardiothoracic intensive care unit as I type this and is doing AWESOME! I’m so proud of my wife and on her behalf I thank all of you who have helped in so many ways. We know this wouldn’t have been possible without the support and prayers of our family and friends. I know that some people that have donated don’t even know us personally which is amazing. We’ll call St. Louis “home” for about the next 4 months so the remarkable team that gave Angelica a second chance can keep tabs on her while she recovers. I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a big hug to you all on behalf of our 6 year old daughter Annie who told her class that she was the “luckiest girl in the whole school” the day after her Mom got her lungs.
