Kourtney Najjar is 8yrs. Old - Not long after birth, Kourt was diagnosed with nurogenic pseudo obstruction, after having a very painful test called a manmomerty. With the progression of her illness, Kourtney is now in intestinal failure. Kourtney’s Story: www.kourtskrew.com
Kourtney Najjar is a local San Diego girl who has been waiting at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital for the past 11 months waiting for her 2nd multi-organ transplanst to saves her life after her 1st one failed last July. The Najjar's thought they were prepared and were for Kourt's first transplant but never dreamed she need another one. It has devastated them emotionally and financially! Mark and Laura both make the 300 mile trip to UCLA at least once per week while one parent is with Kourtney and the other is here with her 3 siblings. The Najjar's also have a familiy business they are in danger of losing as well.
