Dear Friends and Family,

Breathing is something most of us take for granted. I know I did. But when your lungs do not provide the air you need, your body becomes paralyzed and you cannot move. Since I was diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis 18 years ago, I have been slowly losing lung function. The disease has caused scar tissue in my lungs and they have become stiff and unable to hold much air. Because of this, my lungs have lost their ability to move oxygen into my bloodstream at a normal rate. As a result, my heart has been affected and I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Three years ago I had surgery to have a defibrillator/pacemaker implanted to regulate my heartbeats, and help control life-threatening arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) through electric shock.
