Dear Friends & Family,
Welcome to my "Great Strides - Cure Cystic Fibrosis" Personal Page. The cure for Cystic Fibrosis is very dear to my heart because two of our grandchildren, Giovanni & Briaja have Cystic Fibrosis. Giovanni is 6 years old and Briaja is 2. They are brother and sister. Both were diagnosed days after they were born and immediately began a regiment of medications and breathing treatments. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening disease. It is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestine. Long term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of lung infections.
Because there is no cure, families like ours, all over the United States, fundraise to bring awareness and financial support to the fight for a cure for our grandchildren and thousands of children and adults all over the country.
You can join our team, TEAM BRANCH, by either walking and/or donating to the "Great Strides" Walk for Cystic Fibrosis awareness. Please join us on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at Old Storybook Island in Rapid City SD. If you can't be there in person you can always sign-up on my Team Page as a Virtual Walker. We would love to have you in person or in spirit!
Thank you for your prayers, love and support! They mean so much to us!
