My Great Strides Story
Violet is 12 years old. She was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after her 1st birthday.
Her life has been a series of challenges, filled with lengthy hospital stays, endless treatments and medications, health battles and doctor appointments.
But all that has been eased by the enormous amounts of love and support from her family and friends. Since the beginning, we made a decision to become involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and one person there has remained a constant source of help, encouragement, support, friendship, knowledge and trust.
THAT PERSON IS AMY VAN VRANKEN! Amy is celebrating 20 years with the CFF and this year, Violet and I would like to dedicate our fundraising efforts in her name and joining her Great Strides Team, Alli's Angels. We'll still have our same lofty goal of $20,000 -- which is so fitting for her Amy's 20th year with the Foundation!
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 them and hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
