Welcome to Team Blueberry! We are participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Great Strides Walk in honor of little Anna Byrne.
Two times a day Anna does airway clearance therapy by putting on a vibrating vest for a minimum of 20 minutes to loosen any mucus that has collected on her lungs. While we know she doesn't love the vest, we watch as she accepts this as a responsibility in her life and allows her little brother to press the on/off button. Together, her and her little brother Connor, have integrated the vest into their morning and afternoon routines as a time to watch a show, eat a snack, and color.
Anna is not alone, 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. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
