Help us raise money

For participating in Hope Travels 5K

Our story…

Carol's friends and family are helping to raise funds for a double lung transplant.  Carol was diagnosed with Idiopathic Lung Disease which causes scarring on her lungs preventing her from breathing.   There is no cure for this disease and they don't know what causes it. Without a transplant, most patients only survive between 3 and 5 years from the date of diagnosis.

Carol is on oxygen 24x7 and even with that struggles to breathe with any movement.  

Team Carol - Breathing Matters is raising funds to help Carol breathe! All funds raised will support transplant-related expenses and the ongoing costs of anti-rejection medications she will need for the rest of her life.

Please consider participating in the 5K or making a donation Help Hope Live in honor of Carol Savage.
