I received a very special phone call this week that I could not wait to share with all of you. You see, I have felt for a very long time that my "lot in life" was to help other human beings... to reach out to COPD and other Lung Disease patients. Starting my own BLOG has brought me so much joy and satisfaction knowing that I AM reaching out to these patients and making a difference.
Now to tell you my exciting news! The special phone call I received was from Mr. Kurt Goerke, the Regional Director/State Camp Director for the American Lung Association of Florida Inc. Gulfcoast Area, (I met Mr. Goerke at the Asthma Walk last spring). Mr. Goerke invited me to the "Catch Your Breath" Women's Lung Health Luncheon to be held on Friday, October 12, 2007 at the Bonefish Grill, Fort Myers, FL. To say the least, I am ecstatic to receive this special invitation. Mr. Goerke also mentioned that he "has seen what I am doing on-line and greatly admires how I am reaching out to others."
The luncheon will be of great interest as their program consists of Speakers & Presenters from the Lee Cancer Care and Health Park Pulmonary Associates. Also Personal Testimonials from a Lung Cancer Survivor, a Lung Cancer Victim's Daughter and a Chronic Asthmatic.
For me to receive such a marvelous compliment from a wonderful person made me feel great! I will be attending the luncheon with honor. I hope you will look forward to my post after the luncheon, as I will tell you all about it!
Let us all reach out to one another and share our "Breath for Life".
