    I am shocked and heartbroken to learn that Charity Sunshine Tillemann-Dick passed away this morning. Author, opera singer, PH patient and two-time double-lung transplant recipient, Charity represented and supported our community. Charity passed away peacefully with her husband, mother, and siblings at her side and sunshine on her face.

    Read her interview with Serena Lawrence on our site, and watch her TED talk here.

    Interview with Charity Tillemann-Dick, Part 1

    In January 2018, I was lucky to meet Charity at a book signing in San Francisco. Her energy and enthusiasm filled the room to bursting! Have you read Charity’s book? The Encore: A Memoir in Three Acts chronicles her remarkable journey with through pulmonary hypertension, lung transplantation, and cancer. Her legacy will continue to inspire us all.

    Kathleen, Charity, and friends with heart and lung transplants at Book Passage in San Francisco.

    Wow,
    I am so speechless for your loss and the loss of an advocate for the transplant and PH community. She seems like such a wonderful person and so full of life and love for what she did ! So heart shattering to hear about the passing of those who have made an impact in our lives. Hugs and thoughts are with her family and friends and with you Kathleen!
