Danica has been described as a fighter, an "old soul" and "other worldly".  At 14 she earned her black belt in Taekwondo.  At 16 she won 2nd place at the Laugh-In Comedy club performing her own material.  She has acted in numerous plays Including Wellesley Girls, Andorra, Once Upon A Mattress, Metamorphoses and Big River.  She has a sharp wit and a big heart.
And now, failing lungs.
Danica has Cystic Fibrosis, a progressive genetic disease that causes among other things, many severe lung infections.
Right now, Danica is at UF Health Shands Hospital waiting for a lung transplant.  Her family, thankfully, has good insurance, but it doesn't cover everything and the bills are starting to add up.
Thank you for your generosity and willingness to help Danica breathe deep.

Danica's physical therapist through her a graduation party today knowing that she missed two graduations while she was in the hospital. She has finished in-hospital physical therapy and has been released from the hospital. She now moves to phase 2 of her rehabilitation.The Doctors initially predicted three to five months of outpatient therapy but Danica is beating expectations so far. At this pace she'll be home in September.
Thank you all so very much for your love and support.

The moment we've all been waiting for is coming soon. The doctor say they are going to release Danica to outpatient therapy!
You can imagine how thrilled we all are.
We are also so very thankful to everyone who has contributed to help with this phase of Danica's recovery.
Danica has to stay within 45 minutes of the transplant center for 3 to 5 months for rehab. This phase would be very difficult without your generosity.

On behalf of Danica thank you so very much for your love and support

Just wanted to let you all know that Danica is continuing to progress and retains her sense of humor!
Another week or two like this and they will release her for outpatient therapy!
She does have to stay within 45 minutes of the transplant center for at least 3-5 months and your very generous donations will help pay for her apartment.
Thank you you all so much for your kindness, generosity and warm encouragement.
With love and gratitude,
The Murray's
