Welcome to my Struttin For Sutton 2019 Page!! We are excited you have considered donating to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation or joining our walk team! This is a cause so near and dear to our hearts!
As all of you know, with Sutton's presence in this world, also came a diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis for him and our family. Although we wouldn't change one second of what God has given us, it has been a challenging roller coaster we have been faced with since we figured out the "NEW NORMAL" CF would bring to our every day lives and the future for our little Sutton. We continue to KNOW God is good, and what he has given us is beyond what we deserve. These challenges have brought us strength, courage, determination, and DRIVE to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation find a CURE for Sutton and so many others affected by this disease.
Sutton is now 6 years old!! We can’t even believe how fast he is growing up! He is our soft hearted, kind, SMART, and driven Warrior, who teaches us just as much each day as we teach him. He is obsessed with rock climbing, and it is incredible to see how NOTHING holds this kid back when it comes to crushing those climbing walls and boulders. His CF diagnosis has been increasingly more positive as the years have gone by. Sutton has been thriving OFF his VEST treatments and without enzymes for over 4 years now!! He’s doing well on the growth chart and despite some struggles with allergies and an occasional need for his rescue medication albuterol…he has had a WONDERFUL, HEALTHY, year! He no longer needs many of the medications he needed when we started this journey, which is a HUGE win in our books. Our prayer is that he will continue to show how strong he is! Even more encouraging is that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's research and funding has aided in the development of some new medications that are drastically reducing the symptoms of CF. Although it is not a cure YET, it is highly encouraging for us to know that there are some options for treatments should he need them later on down the road. The years have brought PROOF that fundraising WORKS. These developments are a direct result of the funding provided only through donations made to the CFF by generous people just like YOU. Last year, Struttin For Sutton raised OVER $13,000 in Sutton's name to give to the foundation. That’s incredible, and evidence that there are so many kind hearted people behind us in our fight for a CURE. We would LOVE to CRUSH that number this year!
That's why we need YOUR help!!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. 1000 new people are diagnosed each year with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We are so blessed that Sutton's CF is mild and that he has shown IMPROVEMENT over the last few years, but many others aren't that lucky.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By participating in the Great Strides Walks, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis. PLEASE JOIN US!! Support Sutton by making a donation to our Great Strides fundraising campaign today, AND even better yet...joining us in one of our walks! Be a part of our Struttin For Sutton Team and a part of the campaign to not give up on these warriors UNTIL IT’S DONE!!
Help us reach our fundraising goal. Your gift goes to life-saving research and medical progress and is 100-percent tax deductible. Every little bit is SO greatly appreciated and so are your prayers...prayers that Sutton continues to be the happy, healthy, onery little boy that he is, and that VERY soon (as a result of your generous help), CF will stand for CURE FOUND for all of the people in this world fighting this disease!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Jeremy, Nicole, Sutton, & Fischer Spooner
