Jaxson was born 6/20/15 at Eastern Maine Medical Center, he spent 52 days in the NICU. At birth, Jaxson required surgery for a blockage in his bowel. Jaxson underwent testing while in the NICU that revealed he has CF. Right now our biggest struggle is finding the right combination of medications to help him gain weight and take care of his tummy achs. None of this seems to hold this crazy redhead back. He is very smart and has an eagerness to learn. He is also extremely independent, he does most of his treatments himself and swallows all his pills with a little help of pear sauce. He has a big smile and a great personality that will make you fall in love with him, just ask any nurse who has cared for him in the past. Please consider joining us in supporting the efforts to finding 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 walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
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.
