My Great Strides Story
Our son, Cameron, has Cystic Fibrosis. 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. I walk for Cameron and to help raise money for a cure for CF! Will you help support me in my efforts?
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure (and the progress has been getting more amazing each year), but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is NO cure for this devastating disease.
Cameron is now 10 years old and is in the 4th grade this year. He is still as energetic as ever and loves to run. He had a G tube placed last year and does night feeds to help with weight gain. This has significantly helped his nutrition and helped him grow a few inches! Our family is so thankful for the research and development that has provided the medicine he can use today. While Cameron continues to learn about this disease, his dream is for less therapy, less medicine, ......a cure! When asked what he will be when he grows up, he says, "A scientist that will find a cure for CF."
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!
We'd love it if you would participate in this year's Great Strides walk as part of our team, Cameron's Crusaders. AND, since we're a national team, you can do just that from pretty much anywhere! Our family will be walking in Cincinnati this year on May 20th. We are hoping some of you in that area can join us! We will also still have a team walking in Louisville for our loyal local friends that can come out to support Cameron's Crusaders AND a team walking in San Diego! Here's how you can help:
- Please donate today. Your financial support WILL save lives, including Cameron's.
- Please pass this on to 5 friends who you can reach that we might not know. If they can each give $10, this will make a huge difference by spreading the word. (This step is really important - forwarding this to your friends really makes a difference.)
- Join our team for walk day or join our National team for a walk near you (we would love more cities to join us).
Please support me!
