Dave General is a man of honor, integrity and respect. He is a husband, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a military veteran and a friend. Through the course of Dave’s life he has given back to his country, his community and his family. With a genetic disorder such as pulmonary fibrosis, it is Dave’s turn to fight the battle.
Dave has spent a total of 26 years in the United States Military. Serving in the Minnesota National Guard, the Army National Guard and the United States Army. With 2 tours of duty behind him he was honorably discharged from the military in December of 2019.
In addition to Dave’s military service he has served fearlessly with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. As a Detention Deputy, Dave has served with honor and humor. He has made countless friends, some of which may call him family.
Due to the pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis, Dave will need a double lung transplant. He will remain at the University of Minnesota Medical Center until the transplant can be completed.
With “General’s Army” walking beside him, we are determined to fight this battle head on. We encourage our friends and our family to donate as little or as much as you can.

Pulmonary Fibrosis - Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for your lungs to work properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, you become progressively more short of breath.
The scarring associated with pulmonary fibrosis can be caused by a multitude of factors. But in most cases, doctors can't pinpoint what's causing the problem. When a cause can't be found, the condition is termed idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
The lung damage caused by pulmonary fibrosis can't be repaired, but medications and therapies can sometimes help ease symptoms and improve quality of life. For some people, a lung transplant might be appropriate.
