Please Help Support Barbara!
My Mom, Barbara Caplan, has been fighting a serious, life-threatening disease called Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (or LAM for short) for the past 14 years. She has been on a waiting list for a donor match so she can receive a double lung transplant. Last Monday night, the call came that there was a possible donor in Baltimore. On Tuesday June 9th my Mom went into surgery and now we are happy to report that she is the recipient of one new donor lung.

Mom came home on Thursday, June 18th and is doing really well!
We are all beyond grateful for the love, support, prayers, well wishes, the amazing doctors, nurses & staff at John’s Hopkins… the air we breathe!!!
She has not needed oxygen since waking up from surgery. My mom’s strength and bravery I witnessed over the past 2 weeks has amazed me. She was up and walking 24 hours after the surgery! This has definitely been the most difficult and emotional experience our family has ever gone through.
