Many of you, dear family and friends, have been with us every step of our journey. Thank you for standing by us. It is my hope that you will once again take another step with us and support the HelpHOPELive Southwest Liver Transplant Fund in Honor of Gigi Manasan.
At 10 months old, Gigi went into acute fulminant liver failure for the first time. After suffering five more liver failures by the age of one, her doctors feared that she might lose her life. That’s when Gigi received a living related liver transplant. Since then—despite related medical issues such has vision and hearing loss, gastroparesis and organ rejection—Gigi is a beautiful and intelligent 11 year old girl who strives to experience everything she can. An avid runner, musician and actress, she also spends extra hours completing homework she has missed during her illnesses so she can still maintain her honor roll status. These last two years have been the most challenging yet, with almost 20 emergency room visits or hospitalizations, the most recent hospitalization in June. The loss of my job in 2009 also meant the loss of medical insurance and our ability to pay for the necessary hospital stays, medications, and seven different specialists and their services.
We have chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF) in part because HelpHOPELive provides both tax-deductibility and fiscal accountability to contributors. Contributors can therefore be sure that the generous funds you provide will be used only for medically-related expenses. Your generosity DIRECTLY benefits Gigi’s medical care. To make a contribution to this fundraising campaign.
