While transplants give recipients like Gary a second chance, they aren’t a cure.
A lung transplant transforms lives affected by diseases such as cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis and COPD. These diseases affect more than 15 million Americans and are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
We want to change that through funding research to stop all lung transplant rejection.
The Lung Transplant Foundation (LTF) was founded as a non-profit organization by a group of lung transplant recipients from Durham and Chapel Hill, NC. Since 2009, we have raised funds and advocated for lung transplant research. We also provide education and emotional support for transplant recipients and their caregivers through our Mentorship Program.
The Mentorship Program (in honor of Joseph J. Carter) connects transplant recipients and caregivers with trained volunteer mentors who have gone through the lung transplant process themselves. It provides an essential link between people living successfully following their transplant experience and those new or adjusting to life after a transplant.
