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.

The 2017 Fall Gala
This year’s elegant gala was held at Guastavino’s in New York City. It featured music, dancing, a live auction, free-flowing champagne, and wonderful entertainment. Performing for us was opera singer and double lung transplant patient Charity Sunshine Tilleman-Dick and a show-stopping performance from the incredible Patti LaBelle. It was a night of celebration and support for the life-extending research taking place at Columbia University Medical Center.
