Message from the President

As President of the Lung Transplant Support Organization (LTSO), I extend my best wishes to all lung transplant recipients, their caregivers, and their loved ones. This month, we celebrate Valentine’s Day, our love for each other, and our community’s love, courage, and strength.

If you are a transplant recipient, awaiting transplantation, or supporting a loved one through this process, your presence is a testament to the power of love. You have embarked on a remarkable journey and are facing challenges with the determination and grace that love brings.

Please take a moment to appreciate the love and support that surrounds you, whether from family and friends or members of the Lung Transplant Support Organization. Please actively engage with LTSO by attending our family-centered events or reaching out for support when needed. We are always here to help you in any way that we can.

On May 18, we will celebrate with our 15th Annual Norm Lydiard “Breath of Hope” Charity Golf Tournament. Our primary fundraising event is an opportunity for the entire lung transplant community to get together for golf and fellowship. We are on target to sell out the golf tournament this year, so register early. We have a lunch-only add-on for your family members who don’t golf but would like to attend lunch. Advanced registration is required.

LTSO has a new website with online registration for the golf tournament, raffle tickets, Mulligans, and the putting contest. Register today on the golf tournament registration page under the Events tab.

Thank you for being a part of our community. I wish you all a life filled with love, joy, and gratitude.

Best wishes,

David Wick, Jr., President
