Our names are Audrey and Adeline. Today we would like to ask for your help with something very important to us. We have an uncle who is five years old named James. He has a disease called cystic fibrosis. We call it CF. CF makes his body have lots of sticky mucus in his lungs so it's hard for him to breathe. That means his body coughs a lot, but his kind of coughs can't make us sick. It also is hard for him to gain weight.
When he comes over to play, we help with his breathing treatments, his vest, and give him enzymes with his food. He knew how to swallow whole pills when he was three years old! He swallows them with his apple sauce. We also play with James, because even with CF, he's a regular kid. We play lightsabers and watch the Lego movie a lot. James also loves dinosaurs and sharks. We also draw and run and play and snuggle.
We are going to be walking at an event called Great Strides in May. It's not a race, but you can run if you want to. Mostly we just want our friends and family to come out and walk with us, and if you are able, please donate to our page. We are trying to raise at least $300 to help the CF Foundation find a cure. We want James to have a cure so he can have a long life and not have to do so many treatments and take so much medicine.
Will you please make a donation to help us meet our goal? You can also join our team to walk with us in Dallas on May 4 in Addison. It's a lot of fun and the more people that are there the more we can show James that we love him!
Love, Addy and Audrey
