Cami’s liver stopped working properly and her parents and family have done everything they can to keep her alive.
Cami just turned sixteen and at her young age has been a source of inspiration and strength to her friends and family. Her drive and positive attitude toward life are exemplary!
A couple of weeks ago Cami’s health deteriorated in Guatemala and her parents, desperate to save her life, made the decision to fly Camila to the U.S. using an air ambulance service. Doctors in the U.S. were very concerned, but reacted on time and took all the necessary steps to stabilize her, but they were clear in explaining that she needed a liver transplant. They placed her on the A1 list for a liver transplant. On October 23, 2018, she underwent surgery and a second chance in life with a new liver.
Her recovery has been impressive. Her drive, competitive spirit, outstanding physical condition (from having always been a young athlete) and her tenacity have helped her slowly but steadily recover. She has been brave and strong!
Her family is sure God has a plan for her and there are great things in her life to come. As an avid crossfitter, Cami knows this is the hardest and most important WOD (used in CrossFit for workout), in her life. She understand that she needs to decide how to confront the situation and how that will make a difference in the final result. Cami is truly pushing herself to the next level, but she needs your help.
Cami’s parents don’t have enough financial support to cover all the costs that this procedure represents, the ongoing and continued treatment that is necessary for her liver transplant to be successful.
Please help Cami have the opportunity to enjoy the rest of her life! She is grateful for your support and once she successfully overcomes this health challenge will focus on finding a way to pay it forward.
