Double Lung Transplant Recipient Conquers Mountain To Support A Noble Cause.

Two-time double lung transplant recipient, Teri Raymond, her son, and a group of medical professionals completed a challenging hike up Camelback Mountain in Phoenix on Saturday. The hike was organized to raise funds for the lung transplant program at St. Joseph’s Norton Thoracic Institute, where Raymond received her life-saving transplants. Previously, she hiked the Grand Canyon after her first transplant. The group took the Echo Canyon Trailhead, which symbolizes the dedication and hard work of the staff at Norton.

Donations can be made online to support the lung transplant care program at the Norton Thoracic Institute. The funds raised will be used for innovative technology and research on organ rejection. In addition to lung transplants, the institute also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of thoracic diseases such as lung, esophageal, and chest disorders. Furthermore, the institute has gained recognition for its efficiency, being the fastest center in the nation to perform over 1,000 lung transplants.

The hike up Camelback Mountain not only served as a fundraising event but also highlighted the resilience and determination of lung transplant recipients like Teri Raymond.
