My Great Strides Story
My grandson Vincent is a bright, adorable and active 7 year old. He plays, soccer, hockey and baseball. He spends his summers on Lake Champlain fishing, swimming and kayaking. We are truly blessed to have this courageous little "spitfire" in our lives!
And Vincent has cystic fibrosis.
His daily struggles are many! The disease requires him to undergo hours of breathing treatments to clear his airways and swallow dozens of enzymes (to process food) daily to keep him healthy!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
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.
Please support me!
