Dear Friends:

Thanks for visiting our web site

www.flight4lives.com

So the story is that there we were ticking along nicely when along came this bombshell. Chris was found to have had Hepatitis since being a kid and it was going to be fatal unless something happened very quickly. And Corrine had to deal with the horror of the situation.

Along came King's College Hospital to the rescue with the gift of life in the form of a transplant operation. King's is the largest specialist liver transplant unit in the world with a leading edge research department and do amazing things. And the Listen Group helps families faced with situations like this in a variety of ways. The most important to us being the Listen Lodge houses where family members can stay near their loved ones, find support and weather the storm surrounded by people who know what they're going through.

So please give to the King's College Hospital Charity through this page and the money will go to all of the above.

And please become an organ donor so that some of the 1000 Britons who die every year waiting for an organ might live. And 18 Americans a day. And hundreds of Canadians every year. The whole world needs organ donors.

And have you ever engaged in any of the numerous activities that can result in getting hepatitis? The list includes many seemingly harmless things like getting a tattoo or piercing in a non-sterile facility. 1.5% of us have it and don't know it. That's potentially 7000 pilot members of AOPA, 1100 people who work at Heathrow Airport, 50 BA pilots, 200 United pilots, etc. It might be worth getting a simple blood test at your next physical so it can be eliminated from your system before things go too far.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and we appreciate your support.
