The family and Friends of Angelina (Buggy) Wollan are praying the doctors find a cure for her illness. "Just Breathe, EVERY breath counts!!"

Angelina is a loving, creative, beautiful and vibrant 10 year old girl. Since birth, she has been battling Lung Gunk (what Angelina refers to it as). She has similiar symptoms of someone with Cystic fibrosis. Angelina's primary pulmonologist has been researching her symptoms for years to try and come up with a cure and what exactly happens to her. Since the 2nd grade, Angelina has not been able to complete a full school year. She usually spends weeks at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis and then has to be home schooled the rest of the year. Last year Angelina ended up spending her 9th birthday and Easter at the hospital. Her family is crossing their fingers that she can go back to school and finish the year with her friends. Angelina is on the traveling basketball team and enjoys doing arts and crafts. Unfortunately because of her illness, she misses many events most kids can attend. Halloween of 2011 she ended up missing most of trick or treating because she ended up in the ER. Angelina spent 50 days in the hospital this March and April. She had to wait 3 days to see her baby sister as well because of her hospitalization.

Angelina is currently home, with a pik line and being treated 3 times a day with mediciation and doing a vest treatment 4 times a day. She will not be returning to school most likely this year, and will have to finish the 4th grade from home.

Angelina's parents, Jenny and Dustin, have lots of medical bills they are responsible for. Angelina's home treatment involves 3 different breathing machines and lots of oral medication. The doctors continue to try new medicines to try and keep Angelina lungs clear and keep her the active 9 year old girl she yearns to be. The money raised will help offset the medical bills, and all other expenses involved with Angelina's health. There will be a final fundraising party on June 10, 2012 from 1pm to 5pm at Sarna's in Columbia Heights, MN Admission is $15 for food and non alcoholic beverages. Goldy the Gopher will be in attendance from 2:30 to 3:30pm.

Thank you for your donations, support, and more importantly your prayers.
Dustin, Jenny, Angelina, Ashton and Baby Mia Wollan (The Jacobson's and Seiman family)
