Pam Miles

Circle Of PR Friends for Pam Miles

Pam Miles, our 2004 Chapter President and long-time member of PRSA, needs our help. She has persevered for many years with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic and fatal disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, but recently her condition has deteriorated. Unless she receives a lung transplant within the next six months she will not survive. Her health insurance covers the transplant surgery. However, it does not pay for all of the transplant-related expenses including anti-rejection medications which cost approximately $200,000. She can’t be a candidate for the transplant without these funds. We need to raise these dollars to help save Pam's life. The Chapter has established the Circle of PR Friends Campaign to direct fundraising efforts towards Pam Miles’ Patient Campaign with the Children's Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). COTA is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to help children and adults in need of life-saving transplants. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of your donation will go directly to the transplant-related expenses.
