From Todays Cleveland Plain Dealer…
Double-lung transplant patient to perform opera at Cleveland Clinic summit
“Charity Sunshine Tillemann-Dick went to her first opera, Hansel and Gretel, at age 4. She knew then what she wanted to do and what she wanted to be.
She now sings soaring soprano coloratura, delivering difficult passages of high, rapid notes. She mastered the technique after years of rigorous training.
She hasn’t let go of her dream, even though she battled pulmonary arterial hypertension for years before undergoing open heart surgery and a double lung transplant.”
It’s a great story in todays plain dealer. I’m just wondering why I wasn’t invited… LOL
