It's hard to believe, but these two fun loving brothers (who have even been seen in public wearing matching shirts!) were recently diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). https://www.lung.org/lung-health-and-diseases/lung-disease-lookup/idiopathic-pulmonary-fibrosis/
Although this is an uncommon disease, with no known cause, our Grandfather James McGarity also suffered from this disease. Familial cases of IPF are even less common and there is much research needed in this specific area. Luckily, both our father Tom McGarity and Uncle Mike McGarity are under the care of a research based team at OSU. The Ohio State University Medical Center is making exciting advances as they forge for a cure!
We would like to ask you to consider donating to the Jewel and Frank Benson Family Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Fund, which is focused specifically on IPF research.
The more people who know about our fundraising, the greater the impact, so please share this page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to our family!
With lots of love,
Stacey McGarity Stuedlein and Michelle Campbell
