My Message

  Thank you for visiting my Lung Power Team fundraising page. Join me in the fight against lung disease!! Please help me reach my goal by making a gift today.  A little bit about me so you can understand why lung disease awareness, research, and support are important to me.  I have been a professional firefighter for 18 years for the the city of South Bend.  In 2005 I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis.  I had never heard of this disease before, but it wasn't long before I realized I was in for a fight.  I learned alot about my disease over the years as it spread into my lungs and throughout my body.  I developed fibrosis, "scarring" in my lungs, a few years after I was diagnosed.  I have made it a point to focus on a positive attitude, somewhat healthy diet "oreos included", and lots of exercise.  I adhere to the belief that the more I move the better my chances of staying ahead of my lung diseae.  Kinda a race for my own life I guess.  With your support and alot of training on my part I hope to show others that our diseases, problems, and/or stressors do not need to be a crutch for us.  Instead, lets use our adversity as a spring board to show that we can and we will live our lives to the fullest. Thank you for your support!
