Jan. 19th April and I (her mom,Pinkey) will be going back to Cleveland for more evaluation for another double lung transplant. She has lost more weight, down to 82 lbs. Her lung function is 17%. She isn't able to physcially able to take care of her daughter anymore but she comes to stay with us on Sat. so they can spend time together. My sisters have been working on a beautiful idea for a wall for April to raise money and let people see their support. Butterflies For April.. I will have that up as soon as it's ready. You donate 5$ and put what name you want on a butterfly and we will write it on there and place it on the wall at one of our favorite places to eat.. McLean's in Zebulon.. We've had many birthday celebrations for April there.. and we'll have many more.. But I will put up the information and pictures when we are ready.. Thanks for the prayers and support..

Hello Everyone!

For those of you who follow myself, April or her family on facebook you may already know that April conquered her fear of flying and took her first flight to Cleveland Clinic for a re-transplant evaluation. Isn't she amazing? She went through a rigourous few days of testing and the results were pretty optimistic. In basic terms Aprils lower lobes are very tight but her upper airways are open. She was told she needs to treat her body like a CF patient again and start her exercises, including wearing her CF vest. She is not going to be listed for transplant at this time. Rather, she will go back to Cleveland again in 4 months to evaluate her condition and progress. Rejection can come and go. With this said it is more important than ever that we help April raise funds to help with the cost of these trips as she will now be a frequent flyer  As April continues this journey she will need continued prayers, support, love and assistance from all of us.

 

Thank you to all who have donated, sent their love and prayers. April is true warrior, drawing strength from her faith, family and friends, though she does have her moments of fear and anxiety she never gives up and neither will we!

Great news!!! April received a call from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. After reviewing her clinicals and speaking to her doctor they've agreed to take her case. And in just 24 short hours after opening the fundraiser for donations we've hit the $1000 mark. The generosity and kindness is overwhelming and thank you is not enough to express what is felt in our hearts. You guys are amazing!!!

 

 

Love,

Cassandra, April, Family and friends
