Dotson patiently waits for lung donor

Email

A year ago, Kevin Dotson was slaloming down a ski hill at Lutsen.

Now, with bags packed, he's waiting for the phone to ring with news that a lung donor has been found.

Kevin, 56, has been diagnosed with interstitial lung disease, causing progressive scarring of the lungs.

In November 2010, Kevin began experiencing a dry cough. By January 2011, he detected shortness of breath. He attributed the conditions to being out of shape and carrying a few extra pounds.
