Family and friends of Rebecca Michael are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund expenses associated with transplantation.
Becky loves the outdoors, and is an active member of her church and community. She and her dog, Bailey, enjoy walking on the trails all over Duluth. She has always enjoyed going to the races, and loves geocaching. Her son, Garrett, is her pride and joy, and she is very proud of the young man he has become.

Becky has been doing really well! It’s had its ups and downs, but she is back in Duluth, and got to have a visit with her dog, Bailey, today! Bailey can’t come home just yet, as the incision is still healing, and Becky has a lot of physical restrictions while her body continues to mend. She isn’t able to drive yet, but would love to go for a walk – so, if you’re planning to go out geocaching, she’ll ride shotgun and help you search! Thank you for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers, it will be be a long road to a full recovery, but she gets stronger every day!

Update at 7:54pm 2/25/19. Becky is still in surgery (12 hours!), but the surgeon just came out to say she is stable, and they are closing up. The islet yield was good, and they have been transplanted into her liver and abdomen. Only time will tell if they will survive and hopefully thrive, once again creating insulin, or if she will be a diabetic from now on. We hope to be able to see her in about an hour in the recovery room. Thanks again for all your positive thoughts and comments throughout the day!
