Eight years ago, I was an active guy. I had a great family and I was skiing, sailing, hiking and running a summer camp. At the time, I had no idea what pulmonary fibrosis was, and if someone had told me I would soon be on the waiting list for a lung transplant, I would have said they were crazy…
Every day pre- and post-transplant patients face some incredibly tough questions. Will I survive the wait list? Will the lung donated to me be healthy enough for transplant? Will I succumb to infection or rejection?
But life-extending medical breakthroughs are being developed right now at Columbia University Medical Center.
Join us in bringing these amazing advances forward. Not decades from now, but when they need it most. Right now. Donate Today.

We are the Lung Transplant Project.
Many of us have benefited from life-extending lung transplants and were given a second chance at life. Now, our mission is to fund the research that will soon solve the problems of rejection, infection and lengthy waiting lists.
Beyoncé and Pharrell donate to the Lung Transplant Project!
It's wonderful that these incredible celebrities donate and support our goals toward lung transplant research.
Each year the Lung Transplant Project holds 2 events. A spectacular fundraiser and a holiday party for our lung transplant community.
This year’s elegant gala was held at Guastavino’s in New York City. Performing for us was the incredible Patti LaBelle. Also performing was opera singer and double lung transplant recipient Charity Sunshine Tilleman-Dick. It was a night of celebration and support for the life-extending research being done at Columbia Medical Center which benefits lung transplant patients worldwide!
