My Great Strides Story
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. For our family, the battle started when Liam was 18 months old. He will be 20 this fall and we are still waiting on our cure and prayers to be answered. Everyday Liam takes handfuls of pills and completes hours or respiratory treatments to maintain the best health he possibly can. He has grown into a fine young man, working full time and living on his own, life milestones that when he was diagnosed we were not sure he would have the time or health to reach. As a mom hearing your child may live to see 5, 10 and half the people with cf may reach 30 was just not enough for us. We struggled and fought to show Liam how to properly take care of his health and we did it! He reached another milestone this last year when he graduated from Fletcher High School and moved into his own place in July! Every day he continues to fight. That is why we walk and raise money to support who has supported cf research all these years. Even though he does not need me to hold his nebulizer, beat his back for his CPT or put his meds into applesauce so he can swallow them he still needs us to continue to fight along his side. Please consider making a donation to help cf fighters like Liam! Thank you in advance and I hope you all take a moment just to breathe, something cf patient struggles to do every day.
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 walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
