As many of you know, I was born with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that affects the respiratory and digestive systems. Diagnosed at age six, I have been slowly losing lung capacity throughout my life. Today, I am unable to work, and even with supplemental oxygen, simple tasks such as showering and getting dressed have become difficult. My wife and I have been told that my only chance at survival is to have a double-lung transplant.
Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic are overseeing my care, and I know this transplant will give me a new lease on living, and a quality of life I have yet to experience. Unfortunately, the transplant that will save my life does not come without cost.

This is all so overwhelming folks! After just one week of campaigning on Facebook, we essentially reached our original goal! Our compiled total after one week is $9,185, with more coming from those who mailed checks! As we still have several events in the works, we had to raise our goal! Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming events, and how you can help. To all of you who donated, shared our page on Facebook, and gave us your love and support, you are all AMAZING! Thank you all so much!
