Our friend Edwin was listed today for his new lungs! Edwin is someone I admire very much as he's worked so hard just to get listed. He relocated from Puerto Rico about a year ago, leaving behind friends and family. That's not easy to do when you are so ill and you know that if you don't get the lungs, you'll die. It's also been a huge financial strain.
Edwin moved to a place he didn't know in Minnesota. He as undergone a year of tests, surgeries to correct some issues that kept him from being a candidate, more tests, and more tests, and then more surgery. It hasn't been an easy road, but he's hung in there and been a tough cookie.
Now, he has his chance at a new birthday.
Here is his lung transplant fundraising page:
