      Shout Out to Caleigh Sarah Haber!⠀

      Born and raised along the salty beaches of the California coast, @fight2breathe was diagnosed at birth with cystic fibrosis. Growing up, Caleigh stayed healthy through sports and social activities, and later moved to San Francisco to attend culinary school. ⠀

      Despite her best efforts to balance health and happiness she found herself with end-stage lung disease, frequently hospitalized and requiring a double lung transplant for survival. Caleigh waited on the United Network of Organ Sharing’s transplant list for 19 months. She received new lungs on October 20th, 2015 and continued on to live a successful life achieving new goals everyday. In January of 2017 she was diagnosed with acute organ rejection and her health quickly declined. By May she was in full, chronic rejection leading to a search for a transplant center who will give her a second life-saving double lung transplant. UCLA accepted her case and admitted her into the hospital in February 2018. Four months later, on June 7, 2018 Caleigh received the call that lungs were available and on June 8th, she woke up breathing fresh air out of fully capable new lungs. ⠀

      Throughout this all, Caleigh loves every day of her life and lives each second of it to its fullest potential. Through Fight2Breathe, she aspires to increase awareness on chronic illness, genetic disease, and organ transplantation, and identify and support innovative research.
