Paula Needs Your Help

In February of 2016, Paula Caravella was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, a progressive lung disease without a known cure and few treatment options. This vibrant 63 year-old mother, grandmother and wife is currently awaiting placement on the list to receive a life-saving double lung transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital.

I was officially put on the transplant list today. Now we wait for the call. Happy to be on the list. Scared about the surgery.

All of the tests are finally done. I have been informed by Mass General Hospital that they are putting me on the transplant list. I have an appointment with the transplant surgeon in 2 weeks. One more test is being ordered but it will have no impact as to my being listed. Thank you to all who have supported me on this journey.
