To all my friends and family: My lungs from my
Angel Gabriel have been sustaining me since my transplant in 2015, but I have a new health crisis that again requires caregiver services.
I was diagnosed with cancer in the bladder and left ureter. On February 28, 2022, I had a radical cystectomy and am at home recovering and learning to function with an ostomy bag. I have an excellent caregiver who helps me eight hours per day and will probably continue for about four weeks. Her rate is reasonable, but I have been unable to do my part-time work during the diagnosis and surgery.
If you wish to contribute a small sum to help me with these costs, please consider making a tax-deductible donation on this wonderful site.
Much love to you all,

Tomorrow is the six-month anniversary of my double lung transplant and I will be celebrating all who helped me on this journey, first and foremost, my donor's family. I appreciate the many contributions of my family and friends who created fundraisers and made 184 individual donations to my campaign, totaling $36,004. My supporters brought me food and encouraging conversation; they drove me to UCSF for clinic appointments and for possible lungs on many occasions until the right ones were installed on October 22, 2015; they decorated my home for Christmas; they walked my wobbly legs around the neighborhood; they gave me healing sessions; they checked in regularly - in short, they showered me with love and reassured me as I dealt with bumps in the road to recovery. I feel blessed. Thank you.
