In 2019, we donated some of the funds we raised to the University of Kentucky Hospital Lung Transplant Program for the second time.
The 2019 donation was used in the following ways:
1.) Supported Research Project 1: "Extracorporeal Photopheresis for the Management of Progressive Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome in Medicare-Eligible Recipients of Lung Allografts."
2.) Supported Research Project 2: "A Phase III, Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial to Demonstrate the Effectiveness and Safety of Liposomal Cyclosporine A (L-CsA) Inhalation Solution Delivered via the PARI Investigational eFLOW Device plus Standard of Care versus Standard of Care Alone in the Treatment of Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome in Patients post Double Lung Transplantation."
3.) Supported Research Project 3: "A Phase 3, Multicenter Randomized Open label Active controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Maribavir Treatment Compared to Investigator assigned treatment in transplant recipients with Cytomegalovirus Infections."
4.) Helped lung transplant patients at the hospital pay for post transplantation medication.
We also donated 20 care packages to the hospital to distribute to their lung transplant patients. To learn more about what's in our care packages click here.
Thank you so much to all our donors for making this possible. You are helping lung transplant patients beat the odds and thrive by supporting our organization. We could not have done this without you!
