Team Paula

An online journey of one young woman's battle to stay alive and raise her daughter. She is only the second person in the US to receive the 50cc TAH-t artificial heart, a bridge to transplant.

The Happy Ending

Paula survived her transplant and the recovery process and is now happily living back in her hometown in Washington State and  raising her daughter Emma.
She volunteers at her daughters school, is active again with her girl scout troupe and enjoying every single day!
Thank you for all the support.  Together we can Lite It Forward each and every day. It takes a huge loving village!
