February 5, 2017 - Erin had her transplant surgery today. Keep the prayers coming and please see the blog posts for further details. To get to the blog please click on the "Blog" link at the top of the page. Thanks to everyone for your support of Erin and her whole family.
Erin Culbertson, daughter of Paul and Karla Culbertson of Green Bay, was born in 2001 and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Due to this disease, Erin's lung function was severely affected and doctors recommended a double lung transplant to help prolong her life. Erin recently had her double lung transplant surgery under the care of the doctors at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant families are unable to shoulder the financial burden of such a procedure. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses. In Green Bay, volunteers are raising an estimated $50,000 for COTA in honor of Erin.
