As of January 2018 she is now a patient of the UCSD Transplant Center. The hospital has worked very hard at keeping her stable but she continuously is in and out of the hospital fighting for her life. They have waitlisted her for a liver transplant but the waitlist in California is very high and they have told her that she could most likely pass away while waiting for a liver here. The doctors have recommended that she duel list to be on a transplant list in other states so that her chances of obtaining a liver are much higher and so is the survival rate because the required meld number required for a transplant is much lower. She is now in the process of being waitlisted at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. It is required by the Mayo Clinic that any transplant patients live within the area of the hospital in order to be waitlisted for an organ transplant. Candie and her husband Gary have made the decision that this would be best so that her chances of getting a liver would be much greater.
As you can imagine this has been a tremendous toll on her, her husband Gary and her 4 wonderful children Arianna, Adam, Austin and Anthony. We are asking for contributions to assist the family with the outrageous medical costs that can not be covered by insurance, up and coming expenses and also for the relocation cost to Arizona. This is a temporary move but a necessary one for her survival.
Anything you can do would be appreciated and please feel free to reach out to her and send her some love. She is very much asking that you keep her and her family in your prayers. She needs all the prayer warriors she can get!!!
