Fund is underway for softball player
A Presbyterian College softball player was in a coma - $10,290 raised for care.
A Facebook posting says the Blue Hose player from Summerville fell out during practice, and needs a new liver to survive. An on-line fund-raiser has raised $10,290 of an $8,000 goal for medical treatment. Cam Alverson update: Another good day yesterday. Cam continues to get stronger but is still very confused as to where she is and what is going on. She is responding more and more. They ran a breathing test for 30 minutes yesterday where they turned off the ventilator and let her breath on her own. She did very well and they ran it again this morning for over two hours. They will run it again this afternoon and continue to test her strength before removing the breathing tube. Still having some anxiety and BP issues that they are working through. She is getting stronger every day. She is such a fighter! Please keep the prayers coming! Three other families here with us have received liver transplants and are doing well. We love you all! Organ Donation is not a tragedy, but it can be a beautiful light in the midst of one.
This is the GoFundMe post on social media:
If you’ve ever talking to Camryn or the Alverson family, you were greeted with sweet smiles and very cheesy jokes. Sadly, last week Camryn fell out at the end of softball practice at Presbyterian College and was rushed to the hospital. She had over a 107 degree fever, and her organs began to shut down. She is in a deep coma and is in need of a new liver to survive. The community has been praying, loving, and hoping Camryn receives a new liver.
Camryn was more than a teammate, she was an amazing friend. She always had a smile on her face and was determined everyday to be the best person she could be.
We all know how expensive hospital bills can get. I know the Alervson family will be forever greatful, whatever donations they receive to help with Camryn’s medical bills. If you are not able to donate, please continue to pray and share.
Update, Sept. 13 -- Cam is going to get her new liver this morning! Please keep the prayers coming! They are planning on taking her back around 0730.
Please pray for the beautiful soul who has given Cam this most precious gift. Please pray for the family they may have left behind.
Please pray for the surgeons and nurses who will be doing their very best.
Also, please pray for all those that are still waiting for their gifts.
Thank you all so much for all your love and support, you will never know how much it has meant to us. We love you!
