carlosVictor Carlos lived an entire month without taking a single breath, after an infection left his lungs unable to function.  Through an breakthrough procedure, his blood was kept oxygenated by a machine while his lungs rested and healed. The pictures look pretty horrible, but after a month, Carlos' lungs came back to life.  Within 6 months, he was running , even preparing to run a marathon.  Talk about embracing his second chance!

Sometimes it's feels like you're so far behind, you can't even breath.  Everything is blurry -- especially the future.  But your situation can heal, and you can get your breath back.  Sometimes it just takes a little time.

So, hang in there, and check out Carlos' story. Remember, it's never too late to come back to life, and take a brand new breath!
