A family is asking for help in saving their sick child's life.

Julia Salas, only 17-months-old, is in a coma at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.

In April, she arrived from Spain with her family for what was supposed to be a three-week vacation. But within days, she developed a respiratory infection. Now doctors said she will need a double lung transplant.

The family is trying to find a medical facility in the U.S. that can perform the operation. In the meantime, they're asking for help to pay for her surgery and other medical expenses.

The account number to donate to the family's Wells Fargo fund is 2088430653.
