LUNG FORCE Walk - Detroit
Team Paul - Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency
Thanks for visiting our Team Paul - Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Team Page!
As most of you know I am the recipient of a double lung transplant. I have been blessed beyond words to be alive today because of this. I am walking to raise money for lung disease awareness and cures for those that are not as fortunate as I have been. Many people suffer for years and years with lung disease, barely able to breathe on their own and many times not even able to leave their own home. I have been there; I know all too well their struggles.
Since my walk last year, I have been certified to be a mentor at U of M Hospital for fellow transplant patients. This experience has been eye opening. I enjoy being able to mentor and work alongside of people with the same condition as myself. It gives me great pleasure to help them on their journey. Unfortunately, not all are as blessed as me, I have already lost two friends with lung rejection after their transplant.
Won’t you please help me with a donation or even join my team to walk at the Detroit Zoo on October 2nd?
Thank you for your consideration,
