My Name is Dan Pfaff, I was born with Cystic Fibrosis- Cystic Fibrosis (also known as CF or Mucoviscidosis) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder that affects most critically the lungs, and the pancreas, liver and intestine. It is characterized by abnormal transport of chloride and sodium across an epithelium, leading to thick, viscous secretions. At the age of 16 I was in what is called "end stage CF" I was dying, without a lung transplant I wouldn't be here today. I received my first double lung transplant in the year 2002, this gave me time to continue LIVING my LIFE as a teenager. I faced needing a second lung transplant 8 years later in the year 2010. Once again a DONOR SAVED my LIFE! TO READ MORE ABOUT MY JOURNEY THROUGH MY TRANSPLANTS PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY BLOG: http://darkandstormyblog.wordpress.com/ Without receiving my transplants I wouldn't be here making MEMORIES with my FAMILY and FRIENDS! Please take the time and become a donor!
Be a HERO and give the GIFT of LIFE!
PASS.IT.ON Pass a LIFE ON, with becoming a DONOR you could save up to eight lives with your organs and tissue ! Giving the ULTIMATE gift of all, THE GIFT OF LIFE! You would only hope, if that time came and you need a transplant someone else had convinced a donor for you to live!
