For Pete's Sake Giving Tree

As you may know, this year the Program in Physical Therapy Giving Tree was raising funds for one of our alumni, Peter Mosher who was battling advanced obstructive pulmonary disease and awaiting a double lung transplant through Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Pete lost his battle on Saturday, December 7 at 1:30 p.m. when both of his lungs collapsed. Pete and his wife were both alumni of our program and proud Billikens. During this fight they took up the banner of organ donation. They knew that Pete was one of 120,000 Americans waiting for an incredible gift. The $250.00 raised by the For Pete's Sake Giving Tree will go to Donate Life America. 

If you would like to learn more about Pete, Eileen, and their children Adah and Eamon, you can read about their journey at
