Carries Miracle

This is my sister Carrie Gagnon. She is the strongest person I know. She is currently in Toronto due to sclerosis cholangitis of the liver. It began in 2005 when she was told she had ulcerative colitis. She went through a lot of medical testing and tried many different medications but none really worked for her. She then had surgery where the doctors removed her large bowel because of the damage the ulcerative colitis had done to it eventually lead to sclerosis cholangitis of the liver. She is currently on Canada's donor list and has been waiting for her miracle of a liver transplant for 3 years and counting. She has went from a normal women who could work, hang out with her friends, and keep up with daily chores, to constantly being tired, she is completely jaundiced, and her body is working so hard to compensate for her liver not working that her other major organs are being affected. The costs of having to be in Toronto waiting for our miracle of a transplant for Carrie is overwhelming, Hotel, food and cost of daily necessities in a major city like Toronto are very expensive and Carrie was just air lifted to Toronto where they had intubate her and medically sedate her. She is presently fighting off various infections and has now developed influenza --TIME IS RUNNING OUT
Carrie will be 39 yrs old on May 14. Her father is by her side in Toronto watching his daughter wither away to 80 lbs.
I am home working and also trying desperately to raise funds to assist my father financially so he can stay by Carrie’s side.
Three weeks ago we thought our prayers were answered when Toronto called and stated, “they had a liver.” She was immediately air lifted to Toronto and prepped for surgery, and just before the transplant was to take place….IT WAS CANCELLED the donor liver was unacceptable for her.
Exhausted and totally devastated Carrie and her Dad flew back home to Pembroke.
Currently shes in Toronto fighting for her life! Together, lets give Carrie her Miracle!
