We hope this year's event will be even better and we will very much appreciate your support and/or participation to help raise more money for 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 by the Toronto General Lung Transplant Team than anywhere else in the world in 2004 (64) and that record was exceeded every year since and on track for 100 lung transplants in 2009.
Some of the projects they are currently working on are ways to prevent rejection, tissue regeneration, tolerance (the body's ability to accept new organs without the high doses of anti-rejection drugs now required), and making donor lungs useable that are presently not acceptable for transplant (only about 1 of every 5 donor lungs are now useable).
No one likes rejection, especially lung transplant recipients and their support people. Those of us on the golf committee are very thankful for the “Gift of Life” and are now advocates for transplant research funding and thus this tournament.
We on the committee are proud to be part of this charitable event. Won’t you join us June 4th by participating in this golf tournament, dinner and fundraising event? The proceeds will help to improve the quality of life for transplant recipients and patients waiting for a lung transplant and their families.
