Justin Legg, 34, a former Navy SEAL went from Hercules to bed ridden. He was used to amazing feats – lifting incredible weights, running marathons, and swimming amazing distances. One day he woke up feeling a pain in his chest. This pain turned out to be a form of leukemia which destroyed his lungs.
He received a pair of lungs from a young suicide victim and was determined to make a difference in the world. Only eight months after the transplant, he was able to run two half marathons. Through running, he has raised $39,000 for cancer research and is planning on raising another $11,000 by the end of the year. Once he raises $50,000 this year, he will be eligible to name a cancer research project which he plans to name, Jarred McKinley Carter, after the kid who’s lungs he received.
Way to keep inspiring and raising money for good!
Peace & Love,
