We would very much appreciate your support and/or participation in this fund raising golf tournament and dinner to support Lung Transplant Research at Toronto General Hospital, in partnership with Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation.

Toronto General Hospital is recognized as a world-class lung transplant center with some of the world’s leading research scientists and physicians. More lung transplants were performed here in 2004 (64) than any other institution world-wide.

Some of the projects they are currently working on are ways to prevent rejection, tissue regeneration, tolerance and making donor lungs useable that are presently not acceptable for transplant (only about 2 of every 5 donor lungs are now useable).

No one likes rejection, especially lung transplant recipients like Kim Cassar, Peter Laurence and I. We are very thankful for our “Gift of Life” and we are now advocates for transplant research funding and thus this tournament.

You can help support and participate in this golf tournament by:

• Organizing one or more golf foursomes.
• Sponsoring a hole for $250.
• If not able to golf, you can attend the dinner and silent auction.
• Donate prizes for the silent auction.
• Volunteer your time to help organize the golf tournament or sell raffle tickets.
• Make a financial contribution.

Contact for prizes and gifts: Kim Cassar email

As lung transplant recipients we are proud to be part of this charitable event. Won’t you join us June 9th by participating in this golf tournament, dinner and fundraising event? The proceeds will truly improve the quality of life for patients waiting for a lung transplant and their families.
