Time brings a kind of wisdom only the heart can understand. We come to learn that life's journey is about the pursuit of our dreams, that beauty is found in moments shared, and that the joy of loving is the real reason we are put upon this earth.
"Gift of Time" by Flavia Weedn
We breathe. We live. For most of us, this is simple and painless. For those living with Cystic Fibrosis something as automatic as breathing can become a struggle. We want our loved ones to enjoy a full and long life, far beyond the median age of 37 years old for those with CF, and one filled with joyful breaths.
I walk in memory of my niece gaddaughter Tuti. She was a fighter and my biggest motivation in life, LOVE YOU TUTI, and to all the moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
You can help. Please consider donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Please support my efforts to help them find a CURE!
Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
