My name is John Mullin and I am facing a life-threatening challenge. In 2011 I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), a degenerative lung disease that gives patients an average 3-5 year life expectancy. There are no medical cures for this condition and only have a few drug therapies that may slow the disease progression. Hope to live is to receive a lung transplant.
I am married to Carole Mullin for 39+ years; together we raised four wonderful children, all grown with families of their own. Now with 10 grand-children to love and spoil, we always look forward to family times together. At 62 years of age, I look back on my life and clearly have five highlights that are memories above all. My wedding day with Carole is first; followed by “walking down the matrimony isle” with my daughters Lisa, Christy, and Sandy; and finally witnessing the birth of my son Daniel. These are vivid and clear along many other happy events. With a transplant, I will have the opportunity to make many more great memories with my family while being an advocate for others with IPF.

Last week we supported the Wescoe Foundation in their IPF fundraiser event. We also had our own table at the Health and Wellness area to promote our upcoming Breathe Easy Music Festival. So very proud of my son-in-law Griff and granddaughter Shannon who ran in the 5K.
