My name is Michael Welch and I am 59 years old.
I have always been full of life, happy, and an outgoing person until I was struck down with a lung disease known as silicosis and I also was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. This disease has made my life very difficult to do simple daily activities due to feeling like I can’t breathe. I am a father of three children striving to do just simple activities with them. I am looking to raise money to help me pay for the initial medical fees of getting on the lung transplant list.
