Wichita Thunder Fundraiser for Transplant Patient

February 6, 2009

Watch this brief video from Eyewitness News 12 in Wichita, Kansas to see how the local hockey team worked together to support NFT patient, Gary Paul.

Gary first experienced breathing difficulties in 2006. Extensive testing led to his diagnosis of interstitial lung disease. The disease causes irreversible scarring of the lung tissue, and Gary's breathing problems will increase with time. He currently relies on supplemental oxygen, and his doctors believe a lung transplant is his only hope.

After serving many years as a volunteer for his hometown team, the Wichita Thunder, the team and fans returned the favor to show their support for Gary.
