My Great Strides Story

   Unfortunately, 70,000 people are born with Cystic Fibrosis world wide.  For those living with Cystic Fibrosis, like Brenna, it is routine to take a countless number of pills and do therapy sessions for hours a day just to have functional lungs.  People with Cystic Fibrosis do not take breathing for granted.  Brenna is very lucky to be able to play D3 sports at Bay Path University with the lungs she has.  She is a member of the soccer, basketball, and lacrosse team at Bay Path.  Brenna Roy will be graduating this year and holds the school record for most 3 pointers ever made in Bay Path University's history in basketball.

    Cystic Fibrosis research has improved tremendously in the past 35 years, but the hunt for a cure is still on!  In the 1980s, the life expectancy for those living with Cystic Fibrosis was 14 years old.  With today's new and improved medications and therapies, the life expectancy is 40 years old.  But this still isn't good enough...

    It is evident that the money raised previously has significantly changed the life expectancy for those living with Cystic Fibrosis, so we need to continue to raise money until a cure is found for this fatal disease.  By walking in the CF walk, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis. It would be greatly appreciated if you are willing to make a donation to my Great Strides fundraising page today!

    Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.

Please support Brenna and the many others who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis!
