Retired Director, Peter Bergstrom, Receives Lung Transplant

Peter Bergstrom, who retired as ECCC's Executive Director in December 2015, has suffered from pulmonary fibrosis since 2008, and has been on the waiting list for a lung transplant since early 2016. 

We are thrilled to share that on Monday, March 28, Peter received that transplant. 

Peter was awake Tuesday morning, walking and talking by Tuesday evening, and may well be out of the ICU by tomorrow. This is amazing progress!

Peter's family is with him at UCLA's Ronald Reagan Hospital, where he will stay for another two weeks or so. He and Vicki will stay nearby in Los Angeles for several months, in case complications arise. If you would like to send a card and well wishes to Peter and family, please send to:

Peter Bergstrom
c/o Camp Stevens
P.O. Box 2320
Julian, CA 92036

The Camp Stevens staff will regularly deliver them to the family. Please note that no live plants or flowers are permitted in the hospital room, so please do not send.

The prayers and support from this community are so appreciated by Peter, Vicki, Jenne, Erik, and Erin. A prayer for healing:

Good and Gracious God, You are the Great Healer of all things! We give you thanks for your continuous presence with Peter, Vicki, Jenne, Erik, and Erin. We thank you for your healing power so abundantly given to Peter and ask for continued healing for all involved in this great miracle, and help them know that they may ever be defended by your gracious and ready help; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
