Dear Friends and Family,
2019 has brought NEW places…new adventures…and a new Great Strides walk to walk for our niece, Clare…
Join us Saturday, May 18 as we walk at the Cleveland Zoo in support of finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Or find a walk near you. Or donate and support all the kiddos living with CF right now.
Clare was diagnosed with CF at birth and is now 9 years old. We walk for Clare, and all the families working daily to keep their CF’ers healthy.
For Clare, this is a momentous year. Thanks to all your support over the years, a new triple combination drug therapy will be available in 2020!! Once the FDA approves this drug for adults, the pediatric drug will hopefully follow in 6 short months.
Team Cruisin’ for Clare’s Great Strides walks have raised over $100,000 in 9 years, and 90% of those funds have gone to research & finding a cure for CF. THANK YOU!
We ask our friends and family to support us again this year with a donation to the Great Strides walk, in hopes that by the end of 2020, Clare will have a new option for her CF treatments.
For those of you who do not get to see Clare every day, she is a superstar! She takes over an hour each day to manage her health. She does two vest treatments a day, nebulizer treatments, and swallows 25+ pills on a daily basis, including enzymes before every meal. She is BRAVE during her blood draws & tummy aches. CF doesn’t slow Clare down - she makes living with CF feel normal.
Clare’s passions include spending time with her friends, sleepovers, playing the Ukelele, art of any kind, baking, Girl Scouts, reading, playing football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, and taking her dog Baxter to the beach. Whew! She is lovable and spirited all in one. She is loving and loved.
Walk with us. Donate. Breathe. 2019! So that Clare can breathe a little easier too.
With love--Nicole, John, Charlie, Elise and Margot Lozier (and especially Clare Berg)
