As you know, I was diagnosed with [NAME OF DISEASE] [XX year(s)] ago. I was lucky to beat the odds by receiving a double lung transplant on [DATE]. Before I got sick, I was not aware of the impact that a lung transplant can have on a person and their family. I still face the possibility everyday that my body will reject my new lungs. Now I feel a special connection to the mission of the Lung Transplant Foundation (LTF) and this makes me want to raise as much money as I can, so that others may have the same benefits from treatments and research as I do.
To learn more about why this is so important to me, please watch my video. (OPTIONAL)
I’m very excited to share with you that as I am celebrating my XX-year “Lungaversary®.” I will be working to raise money and awareness for LTF and their mission to improve the lives of lung transplant patients and families. My personal goal is to raise [$GOAL] between today and [DATE]. It’s a lofty goal, but I am willing to work hard to reach it. I can’t do it alone. I need your help.
