Dear Family and Friends,

Several years ago I was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). At the time of my diagnosis, I had a full-time job and was very active with family, friends, work and hobbies. However, after I was hospitalized in October 2009, I was forced to leave my job. I now require 24-hour oxygen therapy. My condition has worsened to the point that my only option is to undergo a lung transplant.

I am so excited to share with you that on July 8, 2017

I received a bi-lateral lung transplant.  It has been 15 days and everything is going great.  I still need a lot of care and support both financially and physically, and I know it is still going to be a long road to recovery but I am up for the challenge.  Thank you all for your help, support and donations.

I went to the Dining for Dollars event yesterday at Bertucci's, but there was no indication on my bill of the 15% showing as being donated to your cause. I hope you receive a goodly amount from Bertucci's and that lots of folks participated yesterday. God bless.
