The Lung Transplant Foundation is saddened to announce the passing of President and Founder, Jeff Goldstein.

A steadfast leader and treasured friend, for the nearly 18 years following his transplant, Jeff dedicated himself to improving the lives of other lung transplant patients and their families. Jeff spent every day honoring the gift he was given the day of his double lung transplant. The Lung Transplant Foundation now continues its work in his honor, and the honor of all members of the lung transplant community that have been lost. The family has asked that those wishing to express sympathy consider donating to the Lung Transplant Foundation to further Jeff and the community’s work.


What’s being done to change the fact that lung transplant recipients have the worst long-term success of all solid organ transplants?  

The Lung Transplant Foundation was formed to help answer that question. 
Our mission is to improve the lives of lung transplant patients and their families. What began as a small foundation has steadily grown to become a nationally recognized advocate for lung transplant research.
  1. We work to identify the most pressing needs for the lung transplant community
  2. We fund and support solutions that target rejection
  3. Provide support, encouragement, and guidance through our Mentorship Program
  4. We advocate for all recipients and families

The Lung Transplant Foundation is the only major non-profit organization dedicated to funding research into post-transplant rejection. 

Breathing Life into Lung Transplant Research!
