Friends and family gathered at Oak Ridge Decor and Cafe in Astoria from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, March 18, to celebrate Laurie Martin’s one-year “lungaversary”. Martin was diagnosed with Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency a few years ago, and went through a double-lung transplant in 2016. Today, she is living life to the fullest and has recently began a new job. Martin and her husband, Eric, reside in Astoria, and have one son, Austin.
