Dr. Beall’s 92-year-old father, whom everyone lovingly calls “Chief White Cloud” for having ten children, is a survivor of lung cancer. His office manager’s beautiful daughter, Keely, suffers from asthma. He also has a life-long friend, Dr. Ben Cox, a brilliant mathematician, who suffers from lung disease. “I see how devastating this can be and how having healthy lungs is key to quantity of life. To not be blessed with healthy lungs is often a sentence to have a lower quality of life. Working together to better these conditions is the only way to solve these problems. Being a long-distance runner all my life, I could not imagine what life would be like with diminished lung capacity. We must and we will improve the lives of those afflicted by these terrible diseases. “
