Eva is a young, beautiful and smart overachiever with a loving family and a great sense of humor. She also shares a terrible bond with some very special friends. Eva and her online friends all have cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system. On a waiting list for a lung transplant, Eva faces the stark reality that the transplant could either kill her or give her another shot at life. The only ones who truly know what she’s facing are 22-year-old Kina, battling chronic rejection from her double lung transplant, and 19-year-old Meg, who tries to drink and medicate herself into denial. Unable to meet because of the deadly risk of passing superbugs to one another, the girls are each other’s lifelines as they face some of the toughest decisions anyone could ever make when all they really want to do is breathe.
Two years after her operation, Eva was diagnosed with chronic rejection and passed away, surrounded by family and friends, on March 27th, 2010.Share This Program
