Former Second Wind President, Tom Archer Dies

We are sad to announce that we recently learned that Tom Archer passed away Sunday, March 8, 2020. We will miss Tom and will remember the wonderful things he did in service to Second Wind and those we help.

Tom was the president of Second Wind St. Louis for 15 years, longer than anyone else. He helped many people through the years heading the assistance fund and through countless acts of kindness. He helped a lot of people through some terribly difficult times.

We will report back when we have more information.

2020 Trivia Night is Cancelled

As an organization whose mission is to support lung transplant patients, we have decided not to hold our annual trivia night. Knowing that Coronavirus is in St. Louis is very troubling for all of us. We, as an organization, want our families to stay healthy during this scary time for immune-suppressed individuals. With the thought for our well being and safety, we have decided to cancel our Trivia event.

We wish you and your families a safe and healthy year. We look forward to seeing you in October at our Lung Walk.

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors and President of
Second Wind Lung Transplant Association of St. Louis
