Hey biker buddy,
I invited you to be my friend and left off the message. I would like to see us bikers organize and each TX Game Biking Team ride across their state each April for organ and tissue donor awareness. We could also use this to raise funds for the team to go to the games, but even more important to me, is that we be able to send our medal winners (some have world class speed) to the world games. See you at the TX games Let me know your thoughts.

My dad had a double lung transplant 1.5 years ago after suffering with bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia and pulmonary hypertension for over 7 years. Last week he was submitted to the hospital for acute rejection. His doctor told us that they only see this in 1% of patients. I'm wondering if anyone here has experienced this or knows of someone who has and what the outcomes were? Right now my dad's biggest fear is that there will be permanent damage to his lungs and he will be back on oxygen permanently. I honestly think he fears that more than dying. As you can imagine this is devastating to him and my family. On top of the emotional devastation comes the heavy burden of financial stress. For a shameless plug: if you are able to, please donate to help pay for his medical expenses and/or share the below link with your network.We are truly grateful for any help, support or prayers that you can offer for my family.Thank you!…See More
