Our Cycle for Life Story
Thank you for visiting our Team Natalie fundraising page!
Natalie is a 5 year old sweetheart who just happens to have Cystic Fibrosis. She was diagnosed with this rare genetic disease before she was even born. It was a huge shock to our family.
Natalie is a sweet, strong, and silly little girl. She loves being outside in nature, hiking, biking, kayaking, running, soccer, and exploring. Currently, Natalie is training for her very first 5k and is so excited to cross that finish line! She has a loving older sister Hailey who is her cheerleader through all of her treatments, therapies, doctor appointments, and medicines.
Natalie spends 1 hour when she is healthy, and up to 2 hours when she is sick on doing chest physiotherapy with her vest. She also takes around 24 pills a day just to eat and drink the foods that she enjoys and needs. A simple cold can put her in the hospital for weeks. Somehow, through it all, she smiles and enjoys her life just like any other 5 year old.
Since Natalie's birth, we, along with our wonderful family and friends have come together in almost every athletic CF fundraising event. We do this to help find a cure for Natalie and so many others with this horrible disease. We also want to set a great example for our sweet girl so that she stays strong and knows how important staying active is to her health.
Thank you for supporting our team and our precious Natalie!
