My Great Strides Story
This will be BZ's Buddies 6th year walking in Charleston, and our 7th Great Strides Walk. As we gear up for our 2017 walk, I am once again thankful and blessed that God has kept our precious Brayden healthy this year. Brayden wakes up each morning a healthy, active 6 year old boy, and in most ways, is just like each and every other fun and adventurous school aged boy.
However, it is because of the tireless work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that Brayden has the medicine and treatments he needs to live a normal life. Without the recent advances in treatments and the discoveries that have been made to better the care available to those living with CF, BZ would not have the enzymes he needs to properly absorb and digest his foods. He would be lacking essential vitamins and nutrients that fuel his little body. He wouldn't have the incredible respiratory machine he has that performs his chest physical therapy twice each day, vibrating and loosening the mucous in his lungs to ensure it is not building up, causing infections and illnesses that could be life-threatening.
As we continue to make incredible gains towards a cure for CF, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the backbone that is working so hard to fund the research needed to improve the lives of Brayden and the nearly 30,000 Americans living with CF. God has brought some incredible people onboard at the CFF both locally, and nationally, and He is equipping scientists with the knowledge and tools they need to help us win this battle.
Funding this research comes almost entirely from money raised by the CFF, and that is why I am asking for your donation today. Will you partner with BZ's Buddies to help us make incredible strides in 2017 to fund the cure? Will you help us give Brayden and all those living with Cystic Fibrosis more and better tomorrows? Brayden's future looks so bright, and I will continue to fight hard for a cure until all those living with CF have one. No amount is too small to make a difference, and all donations are 100% tax-deductible. Help us make CF stand for Cure Found.
