Team Lung Strong UCLA

Hello, hello... Jim here!

It’s almost three years since my double lung transplant on April 10th, 2015, and I’m doing really great and enjoying my life, my Kimmie, my family and especially my 6 grand kiddos. My very deep appreciation also to the Donor, the Donor’s Family and UCLA Doctors, Nurses & Staff will never end, but I need your support to help other patients awaiting transplant and their families.

Please join our team, walk along our side, and enjoy the day - all while supporting a great cause as "Team Lung Strong UCLA" participates in the Donate Life Run/Walk at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday, April 28th. Please click the “Join Team” button, then shape-up for a beautiful 5k (3.11 miles) stroll around the beautiful campus. I’m not concerned with winning, setting records or snapping my suspenders - but I do want to give back to the organization that helped save my life.

Or, if you’re unable to walk with us, please consider making a contribution of your choosing by clicking on the “Give Now” button. I sincerely appreciate any and all help.

I am also very pleased that Sherry Xu (Unit Director, 4th floor ICU) of UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center will be my co-captain for his event. This will be Sherry's 3rd year of participation as well.

Thank you so much!!!

     Jim (and Kim too!)
