The family and friends of Alan Crowther are uniting to raise money to help him Breathe Easy with a new set of lungs! Race Against CF!

I have a wonderful friend by the name of Alan.
Alan is 27yrs old with a wife & stepson.
Alan also has Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that effects the entire body, primarily the Respiratory & Digestive systems.
CF causes thick mucus which creates problems with the stomach & intestines making it very difficult to gain & maintain weight. This mucus also progressively clogs the lungs and eventually causes lung failure. this is when Double Lung Transplant is required.

Alan lives in the United Kingdom and has been denied transplant there due to blood clots. Now I'm working to get him here, to the USA to have a transplant at Duke University Medical Center. Alan's lung function is currently around 20% and he now needs supplemental oxygen to keep him going. Every time Alan gets sick his life is put in danger. Every time he needs IV antibiotics he has to go into the hospital, putting him greater risk of infection. Please join me in this race against time & against Cystic Fibrosis. To support Alan in his mission for New Lungs!

In the event Alan is denied transplant at Duke the money that is raised will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to help make CF stand for Cure Found!
