Rally’s focus is coping with chronic lung disease

Citizen Staff Writer

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 the age of 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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
