Former Marine in Fight for Life to Raise Funds for Double Lung Transplant
Date:2/4/2010

Chuck Campbell's survival depends solely on the generosity of the American people in his quest to raise $1 million for a life-saving procedure his insurance company denied.

SALISBURY, Md., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Chuck Campbell is a proud father of four, a former United States Marine, and a loyal husband and friend. As a United States Marine, Campbell trained with his fellow soldiers for combat, and now is fighting heart-wrenching war of his own. His enemy—lung disease—a battle so fierce that his very survival is dependent upon the kindness of total strangers.

More than four years ago, Campbell, 46, a sales manager for The Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury, Maryland, was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and given less than one year to live unless he received a double lung transplant. What he didn't know was that his insurance company would only pay $80,000 of the total $550,000 cost, and the hospital would perform the surgery only if Campbell had an additional $450,000 in hand.

When his employer, Sandy Fitzgerald-Angello, vice president of Pohanka of Salisbury, who is herself battling cancer, heard about Campbell's plight, she knew his suffering first hand. "I know what it's like to deal with having a terrible disease, and I couldn't let such a wonderful man like Chuck suffer needlessly," Fitzgerald-Angello said. "So, we got together as a team and started a nationwide effort called, 'New Lungs for Chuck,' with the goal of raising a million dollars to give him the gift of life."
