Approaching a lung transplant can be overwhelming. Whether you are a pre- or post-transplant recipient or a caregiver, having someone to talk to who has been through it before may help throughout your transplant journey, leading to greater success.
The LTF Joseph J. Carter Mentorship Program launched with the help of Mentorshihp Director Melinda Anderson, LTF President and Founder Jeff Goldstein and sponsor Shari Carter. Thank you to the 100+ friends and family who joined LTF in Ft. Lauderdale on Feb. 2, 2017, to honor Joe Carter and to help others “Breathe Easy” as the Lung Transplant Foundation introduced the Joseph J. Carter Mentorship Program at VIBE Ultra Music Lounge. A big thanks to Hollywood actor & writer Chris Conrad, a friend of Joe’s, for his video tribute to Joe and the Mentorship Program.
The Mentorship Program connects transplant recipients, as well as their caregivers, with trained mentors who have successfully gone through the transplantation process themselves as either recipients or caregivers, respectively.
