Dear Family and Friends,
As many of you know, my mom Joanne was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and was told she would need a life-saving lung transplant. On June 29, all of our wishes came true and she finally received the surgery that completely changed her life. My mom received the gift of life!
