Breathe In Life Walk Sunday, May 27, 2007

Double-lung transplant recipient Anne Barbetta (December, 2005) is organizing a walk to raise money for lung transplant research at Toronto General Hospital. Anne and her husband Geoff Brown have been very active in supporting the lung transplant program at Toronto General Hospital and I encourage you to support this initiative to raise funds for lung transplant research.

I'll will be joining the walk and look forward to you joining me if you can make it. Everyone is invited to take part by doing the walk, securing pledges or making a donation to the cause. If you can't make it to the walk and would like to help by sponsoring me, please do so on line by clicking here or e-mail me your pledge. Thanks a million, Merv.
