Dale Turner's Stem Cell Treatment

My dear friend and yours, Dale Turner, found out earlier this year that he has a genetic disorder called Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.  This affects his lungs, and causes COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).  His right lung is about 90% damaged, and his left lung is also severely damaged.  His only hope is a double lung transplant in the near future, or an attempt at a Stem Cell treatment. 

He has opted for Stem Cell Research Treatment which is not covered by insurance, and is his best option.  The cost of this is significant, and he needs our help raising the funds to obtain this hopeful regeneration of his lungs. 

He uses an oxygen tank day and night to get through his daily life.  When so many of us take our breath for granted, he knows the value of each breath he takes.   

"Let's breathe some life into this fund raising campaign."

The man who takes the time each and every day to welcome us at our favorite yoga studio, with a friendly smile, and with genuine care for us.  Let's give him a little of ourselves to say thank you, and we appreciate all that you do for us.  

He needs our help.  Any donation is appreciated - nothing is to small.  

Time is of the essence - his appointment is September 27th to start his path to recovery.
