HelpHOPELive Great Lakes Lung Transplant Fund
Bobby Buxbaum of Auburn Hills, Michigan RECEIVED his perfect set of double lungs March 6, 2010!!! Bobby was born with a disease called Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited genetic disease that causes glands to produce sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and intestines causing problems with breathing and digesting food. If you know Bobby you may be in shock that he is in need of something so serious because Bobby tries to live a normal life like everyone else. Growing up in Clawson and Ortonville, he was just like any other kid with maybe some excessive coughing, enzymes before meals and hospital visits every once in a while. Bobby loved all sports, playing football, street hockey and was very active in OSOMTECH, competing with other students’ inventions. Bobby is nothing other than the life of the party, the popular kid that everyone loves; he is always out to make people smile, laugh and feel better about themselves! Bobby is always there to lend a helping hand or a listening ear; it’s never about him and his difficult situation but caring for other people in whatever way he can.

Soon and very soon, you WILL get your new lungs and God WILL get the GLORY!!

I have had the pleasure of working with this young man for the past couple of years & have found him to be inspirational. He is always concerned with other people & rarely expresses concern (or bitterness) for his own circumstances. He truly is a young man of faith and we want him to be around for a long long time. Please help if you can.
