Transplant Type: Double Lung
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Mark Adams has been given a second chance at life. In 2000, Mark was diagnosed with primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). While he battled this illness for many years, it was only in the last few months that his health began to decline dramatically. Doctors said a double lung transplant was critical to his survival. Luckily, he received his double lung transplant on February 7, 2021!
Despite his recent health obstacles, Mark is grateful to have a loving and supportive family. He wife of fifteen years, Kimberley, and their two daughters have been by his side every step of the way. Mark looks forward to recovering fully from the transplant so that he can be the loving and active husband and father that he longs to be, but right now, he needs your help.
Unfortunately, Mark’s new life comes at a very high price.
Even though Mark’s surgery has already taken place, and his insurance will cover a portion of the transplant cost, he still faces significant medical expenses related to the surgery. He will continue to need a lifetime of follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications, which are as critical to his survival as the transplant itself. At this time in his transplant journey, Mark needs help to afford the expensive prescriptions and care needed to keep his new lungs fundtioning.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Mark.
