Robert Miller Goolsby was born on February 9th, 2018 and his parents and entire family have been smitten with him ever since.
Within the first 24 hours, Miller's little body presented with some health concerns that led to a hospital transfer and placed him in an Intensive Care Nursery. The next few days were filled with uncertainty, watching, waiting, and testing. At one week old, tests confirmed that Miller has Cystic Fibrosis.
More than anything we are grateful for your prayers for Miller and his parents as they face this challenge head on. We would be thrilled for you to consider donating and joining us on this walk. By becoming a member and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
We stride until CF stands for Cure Found.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
