My CF Climb Story
As most of you know, I participate in the stair climb every year to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. My team and I will be tackling 42 flights of stairs in a relay race to the top!
Each day, I spend a little over 2 hours on treatments (on a “healthy” day). I do 5+ nebulizers, take over 40 pills, push myself to exercise, with half the lung function of most… and guess what, I AM GRATEFUL. Because I have it easy compared to others that suffer from this chronic illness. Of course there are times when I’m on even more nebs and meds, and on iv’s, but, there are countless CF patients that are in and out of the hospital every couple of months, need to take even more meds than I do, are on oxygen 24/7, and some that are desperately seeking a lung transplant that may never come in time to buy them more years.
I am proud to say, this marks my 9th year of participating in the CF stair climb! Please consider donating. You have an opportunity to not only help extend the lives of thousands living with this disease, but also to transform our lives, by not just lengthening them, but to provide even better treatments.
Money buys science, science saves lives.
Thank you in advance,
