Review for Second Wind Lung Transplant, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Secnd Wind Transplant is one of my favorite charities. It provides absolutely necessary material support for persons waiting for lung transplants. The waiting period can be long and it is often necessary for transplant candidates to pick up stakes and move near the transplant center so as to be available when and if the call comes. I know of people living in Winnebagos on the parking lot of the transplant center here.. Not surprisingly, these hopeful yet very ill people need support that is simply not available to them through conventional public support systems. Second Wind receives applications for help, discerns and discusses work-around solutions and if necessary, provides cash. It has no overhead. All of its work is done by volunteers. Every dollar I give Second Wind I know goes to people who are really in need and whose urgent needs would not otherwise be met.
