New Trier East

Comments:

Just finished a double lung transplant. Two weeks ago I finally got cleared to go do whatever I want to do with some restrictions. It has been a great journey to learn about organ donation and why to donate on your drivers license.
Completed 28 years of service in the Navy, retiring in 2004 and have been all around the world. It was great.

Now in a town of Bellbrook Ohio, volunteering and getting on with life.
