Organ transplantation works! Because of her donor, Stacey has lived and climbed 7 years after her own lungs failed. Are you an organ donor? You could save up to 8 different lives.
Bishop, summer of 2003
Stacey Li Collver had a rare form of lung cancer called Lymphoangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) and underwent a double-lung transplant 7 years ago. With her new lungs, while only 60% of normal, she is currently staying strong and back in the climbing world. However, she has an uncertain future. Her delicate immune system (1/3 of normal) keeps her from working full-time, and a common cold could land her in the ICU at the hospital. The average lifespan of a lung recipient is 5 years.
For more information, please get an information packet at the front desk, or call Stacey Collver at 408-660-0633. You can also reach her at Stacey.firstname.lastname@example.org.
