Xavi was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at just 3 weeks old. If you don't know, CF is a chronic, genetic disease affecting his respiratory and digestive system. We have been so blessed that Xavi has continued to beat the odds year after year however, Cystic Fibrosis treatments are extremely expensive. Without the help of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and their resources, we would not have been able to afford Xavi's medication and treatments over the years.
Please consider donating to this very special cause as it holds a place close to our hearts. We will participate in the Cystic Fibrosis walk on May 18th at Wickham park and would love you to join us!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
