KSBY News has received a heartwarming update from the family of a Los Osos teenager who has been battling Cystic Fibrosis for quite some time. Holly Navolt received a life-saving phone call late Tuesday night, that doctors in northern California had set of lungs that she needed to undergo a double-lung transplant.
A local pilot volunteered to fly the 18-year-old and her father to Stanford Medical Center to get that transplant, and after hours of waiting they learned the lungs are a perfect match for Holly.
The Navolt family asks the community to continue to have Holly in their thoughts as she undergoes this major surgery.
Holly will require three months of costly full time care after Wednesday's surgery. Friends and family will be hosting a hike to help raise funds to cover the cost of her surgery. A 5-k walk/run through the Huasna countryside will take place Saturday, May 22. Participants will gather at the Tar Springs Ranch on Huasna Rd. in Arroyo Grande where registration begins at 8:00a.m. The hike kicks off at 9:00a.m.
