My Great Strides Story
My son's motivating goal is he wants to outlive his parents. That is the way life is supposed to be. Our children SHOULD outlive their parents. With a disease such as cystic fibrosis, that doesn't happen very often. However with the amazing research and new drugs that are now available for children and young adults with certain genotypes of cystic fibrosis, many are living into their 40's, 50's and beyond. I pray that my son attains his goal. My goal and my passion is to help him reach his goal by encouraging him to maintain his medication and exercise regimen to keep climbing that mountain until we find a cure for 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 am one of those moms. My son Eric has cystic fibrosis. I walk for him and all of the other children, young adults and families affected by cystic fibrosis.
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.
Finding a cure is attainable if we all work together to climb to the top of that mountain together and be able to stand at the top and shout "A cure for Cystic Fibrosis has been found!"
