Our CF Climb Story
Kellen was born on August 16th, 2016. Our "Mighty Warrior" was diagnosed with CF when he was 2 weeks old. The last 3 years has brought our family many challenges as we have had to care for Kellen while discovering how complex CF can be. Kellen has been a warrior every step of the way. He is a perfect , happy little toddler! If you know Kellen, you know his giggle is infectious and his smile is contagious. He's bold, he's sweet and he's the best little brother who often tells his big brother EURyou my best frand keywin.EUR Between Dr. Visits, countless medications, antiobitics and breathing treatments, surgery and overcoming a severe dairy allergy, he has endured alot. Because of research dollars he has been able to be on a ground breaking drug, Orkambai, since June 2019. We are so blessed he is currently healthy, happy & perfect! We know that treatment, support and options avaiable to Kellen and the CF community wouldn't be possible without amazing doctors, ground breaking research and of course fundraising efforts. I ask you all to consider making a donation or joining our team: be a Mighty Warrior!! :)
This will be our families 3rd CF Climb and we want to make it memorable! Please join us, challenge yourself, walk with us! (See below for more information!)
Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S. that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers -- all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives. We climb for them, and to help add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis today. Will you join us?
