On this date 8 years ago Jacob Drewry received his new lungs. With these new lungs he was able to move to his beloved Alaska. Jake and Mary gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Gwendolyn. It was a very difficult battle to get to this happy place for him. He spend the majority of his life breathing through what has been described as a “straw”.
Sadly Jake is no longer with us. He passed away last year. But I will always remember how happy they were to move to Alaska and start their family. Without his new lungs he would not have been able to live his dream.
We started a non profit organization CF Northwest (Return to Life) to help Jake and others like him. Cost for medications alone is staggering. Please log on to CFNorthwest and read about this wonderful organization. Please consider a donation or more importantly to sign up to help. If you have any questions or would like more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
We love you Jake and we miss you everyday. Until we see you again
