THE SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY COMES TOGETHER TO RAISE FUNDS FOR 31-YEAR OLD WOMAN IN NEED OF DOUBLE LUNG TRANSPLANT
Bliss 101 Hosts ‘Breathe: A Fundraising Night for Anna Young” on November 10
Anna Young, a 31-year-old Cardiff local, has been living with a very rare lung disease for most of her life and is in need of a double lung transplant. Thankfully she is number 3 on the transplant wait list at UCLA Medical Center, but faces a monstrous amount of medical costs associated with this procedure.
Two Encinitas businesses, Bliss 101 and Bloom Natural Health, have partnered to host a fundraiser on November 10th at Bliss101 in Encinitas. Already 60 individuals and businesses have stepped forward and donated items for the event’s silent auction.
100% of proceeds from the evening will go directly to covering Anna’s medical costs, including housing, pre-operation, post operation care, anti-rejection drugs and the list goes on.
Please take a moment to watch this video and you will quickly understand the why so many people have been touched by her story and coming together to support her: http://annassecondwind.com/#video
