Our dear family and friends,
We are all doing well and have an important request for your consideration.
It’s time for one of the biggest, local CF fundraisers, and we humbly and sincerely ask for your help in making the COWABUNGA CHAMP (formerly Team Joey) the highest fundraising team in Orange County.
There are truly life changing therapies and medications in the pipeline, and it is because of your generous support and prayers that those are even possibilities. While Joey hasn’t yet started any new medications, he has begun using his physiotherapy vest. We get the giggles and have fun while the vibrations and compressions make his voice quaver and sound robotic (similar to speaking into a fan). This inflatable vest is a therapy used to loosen and thin the mucus that lines the lungs of a CF patient. The vest is a proven therapy and has streamlined our twice daily “exercise” regime of Joey’s nebulizer and chest therapy. It’s because of your heartfelt donations that fuel innovation and research that we know this vest works wonders. We are encouraged by the CFF that there are even better approaches in the pipeline!
Donations fund science. Science finds cures. Help us raise funds to find a cure, for Joey and so many others.
There are two ways to support or become a member of our team- either by joining the team as a virtual walker or helping us meet our individual goals by donating to a specific walker. By becoming a member of our team and helping us raise funds, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.
Truly, no donation is too small as $1 per person adds up- it just might be the dollar that buys the test tube that matches an antibody to fight a resistant bacteria that causes lung damage! Your donation is 100% tax deductible!
Many, many thanks! Please know how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness, and help spread the word by sending this note to your friends/coworkers/etc.
With much love and tremendous appreciation,
