Alyssa Magro was born with CYSTIC FIBROSIS, Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.
Alyssa has undergone (2) Double Lung Transplants surgeries since 2015. Both have failed her. The Duke Pulmonary Transplant Team has determined that Alyssa is in need for a Third Transplant.
Alyssa has stated “ I am not done here on earth... I have so much more life to live!! I AM NOT BUILT TO BREAK! “ Most of you might know her as Itty Bitty (Wheelin with CF). She is an inspiration to many! She spreads awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and Living Life to the Fullest through the Off-Road Community.
A transplant is a very long process (any where between 3-6 months) First there is relocating to the the Duke area , next.. going through 23 days of pre transplant rehabilitation with several Dr. appointments scheduled throughout those days. Then there is the waiting period for when she will receive her new lungs, recovery....and then finally 23 more days of post rehabilitation. That’s all according to everything going perfect. Being the third transplant.... there are higher risks involved but praying this is going to be a “3 Times a Charm”
We are reaching out to everyone because this is not an easy financial obligation ...especially for being the third time.
We want to thank everyone for the prayers, love, and support that you have given us since the beginning of this journey.
