Help Krysta live her best life

Hello there! This is our beautiful daughter Krysta Chase. She is 19 years old but developmentally she is about 6-7 years of age. Krysta was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Turners Syndrome Mosaic, and with a ISO chromosome. As far as we are aware, according to doctors, she is the only one in Canada with all three syndromes combined.

She is a very bright and social girl, who has already endured so much in her 19 years. She has had 34 total surgeries to date. These surgeries include: 3 open heart surgeries , 2 cochlear implants, 12 ear tubes, 2 g-tube placements, 1 g-tube correction surgery, 1 endoscopy scope, 1 fundoplication, 4 cardiac catherizations, 1 tonsilectomy, 1 stent placed in left pulmonary artery, 1 liver biopsy, 5 dental surgeries.

She is currently in heart failure, but doing well considering, and has liver cirrhosis and fibrosis from the back pressures from the heart. Recently doctors also found lumps in the liver. She also now uses a chair for long distances as she can no longer tolerate more than short distance walks without her oxygen dropping. We also found out recently that Krysta has lesions on her liver and spleen.

We will be travelling to Edmonton hospital for further care for her as it has become quite complex to care for her here in Saskatoon. We will be holding various fundraisers to cover costs.

We are raising money to help cover medical costs for Krysta as she has to travel to Edmonton for continued medical care. We would also like to raise a little extra to help Krysta live her best life with the time she has left. The cardiology team has recently informed Mom and Dad (Janelle and RJ Chase) that Krysta will not qualify for a transplant and will have, at best, 10 years to live her best life. It would be amazing if we could raise enough funds to send Krysta and her family to Disney and help them make some amazing memories.

Krysta has endured so much and is such an inspiration to all that she meets! We would greatly appreciate any donation you have to offer to help raise funds and most importantly, awareness of her conditions. Thank you so much in advance for your time. Your generosity is greatly appreciated !
