Meet Kourtney Najjar. Although, Kourtney has been sick since
she was born, she is a happy, loving and active 8 year old. When she was only 14 months old, she
was diagnosed with neurogenic pseudo obstruction, also known as intestinal
failure. As a result of her illness, she has spent more time in the hospital
than at home.
Doctors said an intestinal/pancreas transplant was her only hope for a
second chance at life. Despite her struggles, Kourtney has high hopes for the
future. She would like to be healthy enough to visit Disneyland and swim in the
ocean. Kourtney looks forward to the lifesaving transplant that will allow her
to enjoy time with her family and her service dog, Mikey. But she needs your
The cost of an
intestinal/pancreas transplant can exceed $1 million. And that's only the
beginning. Even with health coverage, Kourtney's family faces significant
medical expenses related to her transplant. For the rest of her life, she will
need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. The cost of
post-transplant medications can range from $2,000 to $5,000 per month–and they
are as critical to her survival as the transplant itself.
We are so happy to report that Kourtney received her lifesaving
transplant in July
2010. We wish her the best throughout her recovery!
