Share

California State Senator Sharon Runner who represents the 17th State Senate District is now recovering at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center.

State Senator Sharon Runner is recuperating in a Los Angeles hospital after a successful double lung transplant. Runner is recovering at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The senator has limited scleroderma, or CREST syndrome, an autoimmune condition that attacks the body’s connective tissue.

In a statement over the weekend, Runner praised the UCLA medical team and she expressed gratitude to the family and friends of the anonymous donor.

Senator Runner previously announced last week she would not be running for re-election, as she awaited the transplant.

I wish her well.
