This spring the News brought you the story of Evanne Fisher, the Colwood girl who had a life-saving heart transplant at just five weeks of age – a process made possible by financial support from the David Foster Foundation.
Last weekend, seven years after the transplant and a little more than a month since Evanne and her mother, Tamara, celebrated the David Foster Foundation’s Miracle weekend, Evanne fainted and was air lifted to B.C. Children’s Hospital for damaged arteries.
“They’re not sure how or why,” said family friend, Michelle Bressan.
Evanne is now undergoing testing as she is considered for re-listing on the wait-list for a second heart transplant.
Tamara, who also has a four-year-old son, is off work and at Evanne’s side in Vancouver.
Meanwhile Bressan is co-ordinating fundraising to assist Tamara with living expenses while advocating for the larger cause.
“Our big thing is to have people register to be an organ donor,” Bressan added.
