A little over 3 years ago I met a little girl named Cora and she stole my Heart!
Cora suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. A disease that I had heard of many times but had no idea what it was. I didn't realize that this seemingly happy and healthy little angel faces such huge challenges every single day.
Cora must undergo daily Chest Physical Therapy treatments four times a day to help loosen the mucus in her lungs. This is a process that I have been priveleged to witness and I can only describe as a pneumatic vest that is like being hooked up to a jackhammer for 30 minutes. (She is wearing the vest in the Pirate picture.) She also takes multiple medications, enzymes to help her body absorb fat, salt tablets, and regular doses of laxatives.
Thanks to Great Strides, Cora is now thriving and regular visits with her CF team at Children's Hospital continue to bring positive feedback for her future health.
Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign in her name.
