Dear Family, Friends and Community,
My Name is Jeannette LaRose, fiancée of Robert Blass. Robert has suffered from cystic fibrosis since birth and is now in need of a double lung transplant. At 39 years old, Robert deserves the chance to breathe freely and live a long and healthy life. He needs your help to make this happen.

Rob has surpassed his 1year mark with a few bumps in the road, but nothing too serious that him or the rest of us can not handle.
He has been doing amazingly well. Walking, bought a bike, going fishing with his Dad, throwing balls with the kids & just being able to be himself!!
So glad that I am able to sit back & watch him as he can breathe with such ease. Being able to do so much that he was never able to do before, that I can, as well as many others do with such ease….
I can not THANK everyone that has been by our side during this absolutely amazing journey. The journey of course is not over, but the worst of it is. The continued support has been truly a blessing!! WE love you all!!

It’s been one month since my double lung transplant and so far am doing great. I have a long road to go down but it is going to be a great ride. I can’t fathom how to thank my donor for the ultimate gift and will forever be greatful.
I would not have gotten here without the constant support and encouragement from those that surround me. I will someday be able to help any of you aanyway I possibly can and still won’t compare to what you all have done for me. Thank you.

I can not explain to everyone how amazing Robert is doing. He has made such great strides!! He still has some kidney issues going on and is due for an ultrasound just next week. He has had 2 day surgeries removing pretty good sized kidney stones. He is a lot more active and doing more than he has ever been able to since youth! He still is unable to return to work and is unsure when he will be able to. Thank you to everyone who has done SO much for Rob & the rest of us.
