GREAT NEWS! Biskin was TRANSPLANTED on March 4, 2016.

If you were to meet Biskin Lee, within an instant you would know she is a force of nature. She is compelling, and has every right to be – her life has been a great struggle, but with many hard-earned triumphs, and even more love. Case in point, there are simply not many people who can go through a myriad of cardiac procedures while attending the University of California, Berkeley on full academic scholarship, still graduate with High Honours, and keep her doctors and family laughing through it all. Regrettably, however, in the world of failing organs, sheer willpower and determination will only get you so far.

I am pleased to report that things are going well! I went hang-gliding for my one year anniversary, and it was magical. The struggle with food continues, and the side-effects are ridiculous. I am still not nearly as physically fit as I thought I would be, but everyone’s journey through this is different. Thank you so much for your continued support! I just cannot say that enough. Thank you thank you thank you. This would not have happened without each and everyone of you.

Hello! Until recently Biskin has been the posterchild for Cedars-Sinai heart transplant! We are so ever grateful for all your support. She has had no rejection at all. The challenges have all been around the anti-rejection medications. The side effects have been brutal. But she has been slowly weaned down to lower doses and suffering much less. She was able to move back home, start ballet, hike with her dogs and enjoy visits with friends!
Sadly, her gastrointestinal system has begun a serious deterioration. She is close to 30 pounds underweight as she cannot hold food down, nor does she seem to really digest it. Yesterday she returned to Cedars and is seeing a gastro specialist today. We really hope for an easy solution with a quick return to home.
Her journey is far from over though, so I ask you to please share this fund raising site with all you know. Her sister no longer lives in Southern California so the hotel bills are overwhelming, and she still must travel back and forth at least every other month for follow-up and heart biopsies.
Many Blessings from a Grateful Mother
