Thankful for my donor.

Chuck Mallory

Transplant Recipient, Minnesota

I was diagnosed with IPF in Feb. 2012. I slowly declined for a while and was evaluated for a lung transplant in June of 2016. A 99% blockage in my LAD artery precluded a transplant listing at that time. I was then listed in March of 2017, and received a bi- lateral lung transplant on July 23, 2018.

I have been able to see twin grandsons born to add to 4 other grandchildren. Life is good!

So thankful for this incredible gift of new life.

Thankful for my donor and donor family.
