Imagine going through each day short of breath; feeling as if you had just walked up a few flight of stairs and you are trying to catch your breath by breathing through a straw. As the airways and lung tissues are damaged by BO, this feeling worsens for the kids. Some need to wear oxygen all of the time to compensate for their damaged lungs. While others stabilize and learn to function with less lung volume. Very little is known about why some kids react differently to certain viruses and inflammation or why some kids stabilize while others continue to worsen. There are no FDA approved treatments to halt or reverse the scarring that is associated with BO, and there has been no federal support to study BO in these kids. We need your help to find out more about this devastating disease!
Disclaimer: Any funds donated in support of a patient or their family cannot be used to fund direct medical costs or be given to the family to cover medical or other expenses. Instead, it will be used to support the efforts in that patient’s diagnosis to benefit all children that share that diagnosis. For every dollar that is donated here, 70% will go directly to Bronchiolitis Obliterans programming. The remaining portion will go into the general fund to be used where it is most needed.
