Inspiring lung transplant story

I saw this article on the twitter feed for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. While this patient does not have Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome, I thought the story was inspiring - both for people like me who will likely one day need a lung transplant, and for our HPS transplant heroes who already have their new lungs. 


This man received his lung transplant in 2009. He has made this 70-story climb twice since then! I can't imagine doing that, even before I had pulmonary fibrosis! It's very inspiring to me!
