Bethany and Lucy... why WE walk... THE TWINS!
This year was blessed with health and happiness. The twins are playing soccer with an awesome team. Bethany is cleaning up as the center defender and Lucy rules the field as a goalie and forward. School is great, too. It is unbelieveable that they are in FIFTH GRADE. Next year they will be moving on to junior high. The pulmonologiest told me, when they were in the NICU, "Don't worry about this... this is easy. One day you will have 3 pre-teens in your house, ALL GIRLS! That is when you worry!" Haha, we are there now, and we are so lucky and blessed to have had the support of the CF foundation, Rainbow, and all our family and friends to get us to this beautiful chaos of the pre-teen years.
We don't have Cystic FIbrosis ruling our daily lives, and that is because of all your incredible support!! The girls are able to go to school, play soccer, swim, golf, play outside, ride their bikes... If you were able to talk to a parent of a kid with CF from 25 years ago, this was unheard of. Life expectancy was childhood... not the life we are leading. We are so blessed to be able to benefit from the incredible CF advances of the last 25 years and hope the advance keep coming and the disease is not longer a sentence, but something to treat, live with, and thrive in spite of!
There are approximately 40,000 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.
