In April 2013, Hélène Campbell announced the launch of Give2Live Fundraising Campaign, a social media effort that uses crowd funding to support the needs of those waiting for transplants throughout Canada. "Many patients waiting for an organ transplant at Toronto General Hospital and other transplant centres are required to live within two hours of the hospital," said Ms. Campbell. "More often than not, this means uprooting from their home and finding new housing along with paying for medical equipment, food and transportation while they wait for a transplant. As you can imagine the cost to do all this can be overwhelming, at a time when their health is not the best and they are not working. Usually, this means that a friend or family member must also stop working and wait for the call."
In launching the Campaign, Ms. Campbell's goal is to help patients and their families who are waiting for an organ transplant and are living within the two-hour zone of a transplant centre.
Ms. Campbell received her lung transplant at Toronto General Hospital in April 2012. She developed a significant public following through her personal blog and by engaging celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres through social media. In February 2013, she appeared in-person on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Funds raised through the Campaign will help cover the cost of food, pay for accommodations and transportation, and buy non-medical supplies - things that may not be fully covered by our healthcare system. Out-of-pocket cost for a patient on the transplant waiting list can be as high as $10,000. www.give2live.ca
