Man Battles Rare Disease and Beats the Odds
Michael Thompson was officially diagnosed with Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis in 2009. The auto-immune disease causes the lungs to produce too much protein, leading to breathing problems, a cough and other symptoms.
Lenora, Michael’s wife has created a fundraising page on YouCaring.com to generate awareness and get donations for his expensive treatments that could exceed $100,000.
To see more of Michael, you can head to his YouTube channel, titled “Off the Cuff Mike.”
