My Xtreme Hike Story
I'm hiking for my cousin, Caitlin. She was the most courageous ray of light I have ever known. It's as if she held the entire sun inside of her soul. She touched so many people's lives, some she probably never even met. When we were children I would secretly wish that she could be my little sister since neither of us had siblings.
I could go on and on about her beautiful spirit. We lost Caitlin this December. Many of you followed her story and know of her struggles in the hospital and how she got perfect lungs, too late. My hope is that we raise more awareness not only of cf, but of organ donation. Nobody should have to go through what Caitlin and countless others have. If more money and awareness is out there, then there is hope. On June 17th, I'll be hiking like a lion with a kitten in my heart.
