Rally’s focus is coping with chronic lung disease

The American Lung Association is hosting a “Respiratory Rally” on Saturday.

The keynote speaker of the rally will be Len Geiger, who underwent a double lung transplant at age 43.

Geiger had the lung transplant several years after he was diagnosed with Alpha-1 antitryspin deficiency (AATD). the genetic form of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder which can cause lung damage, emphysema and liver cirrhosis if untreated.

The Tucson Respiratory Rally, which takes place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Hotel Arizona, 181 W. Broadway, is set up to help people learn how to better manage chronic lung disease. The event costs $10 per person.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
