Please Help Mike
When Michael Young was only two months old, he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic lifelong lung disease for which there is no cure. He was in and out of the hospital for most of his childhood and his parents were told he would not live past age 18. The good news is that he has lived more than double that amount. The bad news is that his disease has progressed to the point of needing a double lung transplant within one year in order to survive.

Great News! Mike got his gift of life – his double lung transplant on Sunday, March 15. He’s got a long road ahead but he’s doing really well.

I want to let all of my supporters know that Cleveland Clinic has finally approved me to be listed on the National Transplant list. Thank you again to everyone who has donated to my fund and have given me words of encouragement. I will keep you all posted on my progress, especially when that call comes in that lungs are available for me. 2015 is gonna be a great year!
