My Lung collapsed. I'm fine or whatever, IMO. It happened almost 20 years ago. But at the time, it really took my breath away. I had a life-saving, lung removal procedure to discard of the trouble-making, diseased part, and then I went about my life.
Since then, I've had a special appreciation for something so simple and often taken for granted: breathing; especially with my limited ability to participate.
This year, I'm gonna do the American Lung Association's Reach the Beach Fundraising bicycle ride because I love riding and I love breathing, and I wish that everyone be able to do both.
If you've got a couple extra bucks laying around, maybe you'd consider blowing them on a cause that's close to my heart. xoxo
