My Great Strides Story
Join our Kicking It with Mary Alice team!
It's that time of year again! This is our 14th year of fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Over the years, you have helped our Great Strides team raise over $200,000 to find a cure for this life-threatening disease! So many advancements in treatments and potential cures have your fingerprints written all over them and we are forever greatful! We would love for you to join our walk team and/or make a donation.
With the loss of my mother Imogene Deal, this is has been a challenging year for our family, but we know we can't take time off from fundraising for this most important cause. The new amazing drugs Orkambi and Kalydeco are just two examples of the dramatic advancements being made. Although Mary Alice hasn't been able to benefit from these specific treatments, we know her time is coming soon. That's why our passion for this cure is still so strong.
Mary Alice is doing great and is thriving as a seventh grader. She works hard doing her treatments and taking her medications daily. She loves playing soccer and lacrosse and realizes that they also keep her lungs strong. And she is totally in love with her new doggie Izzy!
We hope you will be able to support the CF Cause again this year and join us on Sunday April 29th at Baylor School in Chattanooga at 1:00 for our Great Strides Walk to find a cure!
Bridget, Mike and Mary Alice
