Hialeah Girl Needing Lung Transplant Faces Uphill Battle

Kyara Rose was a normal 8-year-old girl when it was believed she had bronchitis. After her condition worsened, tests revealed she had a rare disease.

The disease, bronchiolitis obliterans, left Kyara in a coma for three months.

She has to keep away from bacteria, so she and others have to wear a mask when at her Hialeah home. A nurse is around more often than not.

The family needs to move near Gainesville and about $50,000 to receive a lung transplant with the help of the Children's Organ Transplant Association, or COTA.

Donations for Kyara and her family can be made to their GoFundMe page. Without the transplant, Kyara is expected to live for about one more year.
