• Acknowledgements of donations
  • To remind you of our philosophy to make every penny of your donations count, we ask you to look again at our updated plain brochure. It probably is the least glossy, least slick, appeal you have ever gotten! Is that because we don't care about how nice our brochure is? Not at all! If you know anything about printing costs, you'll realize we deliberately used the least expensive way possible to inform you about our purpose. Why? Because we use those funds you so generously donate for direct application, not on fund raising. And that segues into thanks for your generosity. In this issue, we'd like to thank John Boynton, Jack Stevens, and Jane Martin (in memory of Shirley Van Krimpen), for their donations for the Chair.
  • We also wish to gratefully acknowledge the contributions of Rubye Richey in memory of George, Mary Burns and the PEP Pioneers in memory of Ross Harrington, Hilda Swanson in memory of Albert, Georgina Benoit in memory of George, Joyce Bauman in memory of Jack, Louis Rollino in memory of Dorothy, Jo Blanche Dutcher in memory of Kenneth, and Virginia Elson in memory of David.
  • Thanks also to Sam & Vicky Praw, J. Melvin Fosse, The Second Wind Group, Janice Kennedy, Yasuo Masunaka, Keith & Beverly Elledge, Jean Anderson, Barbara Butler, John Mercer, Don Butler, Dyckie & H.E. Wallace, Rhoda Jean Kelley, Charles Dougherty, Bill & Cindy Wright, Bill & Shirley Grindrod, Eddy Ajkay of Bogot , Columbia and Chris Garvey and our friends at Seaton Medical Center in Daly City, CA.
  • Special thanks to Dave Nelson and Jeffrey Baylock who used their matching gift programs at work to double the size of their contributions! On behalf of all those folks out there with respiratory disease, we thank all of you for your generosity and your good wishes.
  • In addition to the many nice notes that you sent along with your donations, we got other mail. We'll share some of these inquiries with you, since they are of general interest. (Names and places changed to protect the innocent!)

  • Do you have a question about respiratory disease that has been bothering you? If so, feel free to write and ask us, either through our web site or by mail. We answer all of your letters.
