Help get Catherine to San Diego to have a life altering surgery to remove blood clots from her lungs. The surgery will be done at The University of California San Diego. Catherine was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension after giving birth to her daughter Ava. She has not only been struggling to do day to day activities for herself, but even doing the bare minimum with her daughter is a lot. This surgery is an invasive surgery, where she is put on a heart lung bypass machine, her body is cooled to 73 degrees and all circulation to her body is stopped for 20 minutes at a time to create a bloodless field to her lungs. Circulation is stopped for only 20 minutes, because after 20 minutes, her organs will begin to fail. Other than having a lung transplant this surgery will not only get her off oxygen, but give her a new lease on life, especially for her daughter Ava and her loved ones. Even if you can not donate much, or not at all help spread the word. :-D
