Okoto's children undergo rare surgery after long-term hospital stay


A family in Okotoks says that a donor has finally come through to help their 13 month old daughter get well enough to get home.

Lukah Mitchell was admitted to the hospital in October and, while she was there, doctors discovered a large tumor that ended up on a number of organs.

Her parents, Tanis and Dakota, say that after eight weeks in hospitals, a donor has been found to complete the transient transplant she needs to survive.

This procedure has taken place less than 10 times in Western Canada.

A GoFundMe campaign, set up to help the Mitchell family with expenses, has exceeded $ 50,000.
