If you have been keeping up with our growing Lung Transplant Patient Support Program, you know that we are launching our Care Package program this year.
What is the Care Package?
We are putting together care packages for lung transplant patients around the country. These packages include essentials that a lung transplant patient needs for everyday life after a transplant. Many of these are essential items that health insurance may not cover like a spirometer or face masks.
What is in the Care Package?
The care package includes:
How do lung transplant patients receive a Care Package?
We are partnering with hospitals that perform lung transplant surgeries to get these packages to the patients. We are putting together the packages and sending them to different hospitals. The hospitals will give out the care packages to lung transplant patients when they are being discharged.
Currently, we are working with the University of Kentucky Hospital Lung Transplant Program. We hope to work with many more hospitals soon!
Lung Transplant patients can also contact us directly if they are interested in receiving a package and we will send it to them.
How can you help?
If you are not a lung transplant patient, you can help by donating to our Lung Transplant Patient Support Program so that more lung transplant patients can have the necessary tools they need to beat the statistics and thrive.
If you work at a hospital that performs lung transplant surgeries, you can help us partner with your hospital so we can get these care packages into the hands of more lung transplant patients.
If you work for a company that makes any of the products listed above, please contact us and help us get these items at a discounted rate or as donations so we can help as many lung transplant patients as possible with our limited budget.
If you are a lung transplant patient, you can help by spreading the word and contacting us and requesting a care package for yourself!
We are very excited to get this new program off the ground and are grateful to partner with the University of Kentucky Hospital Lung Transplant Program!
We are also grateful for our corporate sponsor, Kriya Capital, for funding this program!
If you have questions about this program or would like to help, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
We hope you all have a wonderful 2019.
Today, January 2nd is the 34th birthday of Sid Vahal. If you haven't gotten to know Sid yet, you can learn about him here. He is the inspiration behind this nonprofit.
On this special day, we want to recap what we have accomplished in 2018 and share our 2019 goals with you.
In 2018 we...
1.) Launched our Lung Transplant Patient Support Program.
2.) Donated over $5,000 to lung transplant patients to help them with medical bills.
3.) Connected with our community at fun events such as Mini Con.
4.) Donated $5,000 to the University of Kentucky Healthcare Lung Transplant Program to support lung transplant research.
5.) Began working on the Lung Girl Animation Series script.
6.) Worked on the Lung Girl #3 comic book.
We surpassed many of our goals such as setting up the patient support program and raising thousands of dollars to help lung transplant patients with medical bills. However, we did have some goals that went unfinished. We had to push back the Lung Girl Animation series due to a lack of time and funding. We were unable to send Lung Girl #3 to the printer before the end of 2018. But, we are proud of all that we have accomplished in 2018 and excited to continue to build in 2019.
In 2019 we will...
1.) Publish the Lung Girl #3 comic book.
2.) Begin working on the Lung Girl #4 comic book.
3.) Continue growing our Lung Transplant Patient Support Program by launching the "care package" project.
4.) Donate between $5000-$7000 to the University of Kentucky Healthcare Lung Transplant Program.
5.) Apply for more grants to increase funding.
If you would like to help us reach any of our goals in 2019, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
None of our accomplishments would have been possible without our generous donors, volunteers, and sponsors.
