Peter and Kate's daughter Claudia needs new lungs. If she doesn't get them real quick,  in the next few days she's going to die. As you can imagine they are not leaving her side. We can't buy her new lungs but we can help his beautiful family by supporting them financially so they can pay their bills whilst they maintain a bedside vigil.  That's my mate Peter in the photo with his beautiful daughter Claudia. He works in roofing and if he's not there he's not getting paid. Please help me to help them through this unimaginably hard time.38265274_1554423274919384_r.jpeg

Hi everyone,

Claudia is really going through the ringer at the moment.

Everything we have asked of her she has done but these new lungs are really struggling to get on top of the infections that have developed some the transplant.

She has proved how much of a fighter she is and I'm hoping there is still something she can do to pull out of this.

Late Saturday 27/04/19

Well we have all been holding our breath all afternoon, The doctors have successfully removed Claudia from the heart bypass (ECMO) this afternoon.

They have been planning to do this for the last 4 days. They've been making 100% sure that this is the best move forward because there concern is that once its removed they might not be able to place her back on the heart ECMO as her arteries are very small. They have also been waiting for theatre time and her surgery has been cancelled over and over again by more emergency surgeries, we completely understood what was happening and the reasons for the delays but it has made the last couple of days hard.

This has been a massive step but it came with significant risks, the biggest of these is going to hang over her head for days/ weeks to come.

Her heart is still hot performing the way they would like but they believe it is ready to go it alone without the extra support.

If they are wrong they don't believe they will be able to get her back on bypass in time to save her so once again, Claudia my love it is all up to you.

The feeling from the doctors is that without this significant step she would have been stuck on the plateau indefinitely.

This is without doubt Claudia’s biggest achievement since the transplant but she is still a very long way from being out of critical condition.

In fact for just now she is possibly in the most danger since the surgery.

We are just praying for a good night without complication. We are all trying our best to be strong but there are daily challenges.

Thanks again for all of the support

Hi everyone,

Sorry for not posting an update in a while but the simple fact is that Claudia has just been stable, no real improvement in the last week.

We are hopeful that she can keep taking baby steps and make a small improvement that we can report soon.

I'm not sure if everyone on here knows but we are having a movie fundraiser next Thursday to watch the movie Five Feet Apart which is a love story of people living with Cystic Fibrosis.
