Our CF Climb Story
We are the team Move for Macy.
Macy Leigh was born in May of 2018. Two days after she was born, she was airlifted to a hospital in Chicago because of an abnormal X-ray of her intestines. She stayed there in the NICU where they ran a series of tests on her due to what was called Meconium Ileus, and after four nights was released. We found ourselves back in the ER two days after she was released for no bowel movement and with multiple tests done, at nine days old she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.
Our girl is every bit of sassy as she is sweet, incredibly strong, and very determined. She is a champ when it comes to doing her airway clearance(the vest), taking her vitamins, Creon(enzymes), Zantac, Pulmozyme, Sodium Chloride and any other medication that is necessary. Unless it's grape flavored (; You can tell that this strong-willed girl will not let CF define her. And we couldn't be more proud.
So please, we ask you to join our team and help add tomorrows to not only our Macy, but everyone living with Cystic Fibrosis. By joining our team or making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure. We will not rest until all those with CF have a cure. The time is now. Together, we can conquer this disease.
CF Climb is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
We walk for Macy, our beautiful daughter. Someone's grand daughter, their neice, their cousin.
We stride so she may one day be able to call herself these things and much more.
WE MOVE UNTIL CF
STANDS FOR CURE FOUND.
