THE STORY:

One year ago, January 5th, 2010, my father, Bryan Chenault (seen in the snappy photo on the left), was given a new lease on life. He received a double lung transplant at Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas.

Take a minute and think about that.

His old lungs were removed and a new set installed. I find it absolutely amazing. Perhaps you do too.

Few days have passed since that I have not been thankful for my father's new life. And, since October of 2010 (O.K. maybe late September), I have spent at least three days a week running specifically because he is alive. I am training for the Rock-n-Roll Mardi Gras Marathon (my first full marathon, ever), February 13th, 2011, and am running to raise awareness of pulmonary fibrosis (which decimated my father's lungs) and money for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

But I'm not stopping there. I am also raising awareness for organ donation, for without the donor's lungs, my father would not be here.

Please register to be an organ donor! One donor can save up to 9 lives, restore sight to 2 people, and enhance the lives of 50 more!

It is so easy to register. I've listed the web addresses for registering for both Louisiana and Texas below. Check them out, sign up, and let me know with a quick email or post to the fundraising page.

Help me say thank you to the many people helping families like mine!
