My name is Pastor Mike Olsen, I am a pastor in Louisville Kentucky. I’m dying of a terminal lung disease called IPF ( Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis).  I have never smoked, it is just a rare scarring of my lungs.

Im on a double lung transplant list at Jewish Hospital Heart and Lung Trager Transplant Center in Louisville Kentucky. Watch my video on vimeo The Mike Olsen Project, a short documentary on my struggle with IPF. Link:
