Almost thirty years ago I received one of 3 of my greatest gifts. My first baby girl. I thought she was perfect. She is except she has been sick her whole life. We have been in and out of emergency rooms and in and out of doctor offices until at 4 1/2 years old they diagnosed her with cystic fibrosis. Every wish, every prayer has been for a cure for cystic fibrosis. We have come along way but we haven’t done it yet. Even though Kasey has been blessed to receive a double lung transplant she struggles every day with other cystic fibrosis complications. She just had her 8th sinus surgery this past week. She hasn’t given up fighting. This May we will be raising money to find that cure. Please support me by donating to Kasey’s Kickers team for the Baltimore Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis
Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.

Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
