Hi All,

If you are reading this, chances are you are one of our friends who have known of Alex’s valiant and lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis. You’ve also made your way here because you’ve been apprised of the fact that Alex has finally received the lifesaving gift of new lungs from a very special donor. Over the next few days, weeks, and months I (and before long Alex) will be keeping you up-to-date with Alex’s recovery and life post-transplant. As I am sitting here writing these words Alex is in the ICU ward of Toronto General Hospital. I know that she would much rather be at home typing these words to you if she could. And in truth, she’d probably do a much better job of it. But for now, let me be the one who speaks for the bravest redhead, the love of my life, my beautiful wife, Alex.
