Claire was vaccinated, but due to a congenital heart condition, she developed a complication that could change her life forever.
“She wasn’t getting circulation to her legs and, because of that, there was a lot of muscle damage,” said her best friend and roommate, Heather Valdes.
“Claire is just a positive ray of light and she’s a wonderful woman,” Valdes said. “When she woke up and they told her about it, she was very calm and very peaceful and said, ‘I want bionic legs,’” she noted.
“Claire has been fighting for her life since Sunday, Jan 16th. She was born with a serious heart condition and after contracting COVID, she was quickly in the ICU on life support. She is only 20 years old. Due to complications and life-threatening infection, she will lose both of her legs to amputation.” – the family said on Claire’s GoFundMe page.
