Candy is a truly inspirational, kind, positive, happy person who was well deserving of being one of the lucky chosen few to receive a heart from a selfless donor family. Her upbeat cheerful attitude is contagious and has gotten her through this very difficult situation. Candy was diagnosed with cancer as a child and lost her leg at the tender age of 14. She has overcome and survived many medical obstacles most of us would have succumbed to. Candy is a fighter and loves life and lives it to the fullest everyday! Unfortunately with months in Brigham & Women's Hospital and outrageous medical expenses, Candy is recovering from this life changing major surgery and struggling to pay nearly $100,000! Let's support this awesome person and hear from her directly:
My name is Candy Oyler and I just got heart transplant! I am a survivor of pediatric bone cancer at age 14 and a breast cancer survivor at age 42. I live a positive, grateful, and optimistic life full of hope one day at a time. Every birthday is celebrated! My heart failed because of a chemotherapy drug called Adriamycin given at toxic levels when I had bone cancer. The bone cancer resulted in a below knee amputation. Later on in life I had a mastectomy for the breast cancer.
