Welcome to my Page
Friends and Family --
We are often reminded to count our blessings, and once begun the counting is usually very simple. All it takes it to stop, take a breath, and look around. It won’t take long before you have a quite a list of blessings given to you by God, family and friends. But sometimes the counting is even easier.
I can say without a doubt that there were many who thought I would not see my 25th birthday, doctors included. And with complete confidence I can also say that no one even considered that God would bless me with 25 years of marriage. Yet here we are! On July 20, one month before our fourth annual Cycle For Life bicycle ride, Jeff and I will celebrate that once-thought impossible event – a quarter century of blessed marriage. We run out of fingers very quickly when we tick off the terrific times we have enjoyed together.
It is also exciting to report that all of the fundraising we have done in the past 41 years (Mom and Dad started working for the cure the year I was diagnosed) has contributed to funding research that has developed the drugs and treatments that now has pushed half of the CF population over the age of 20, which was at one point the life expectancy of the disease. The monies you have contributed over the years has helped fund research for drugs that have extended my life. Drugs like pulmozyme, hypertonic saline and Cayston, even my therapy vest.
Now CF children can dream of graduations, careers, and even milestone wedding anniversaries! Thank you for helping to give us the past 25 years. Please consider continuing to share with the cystic fibrosis community as we still strive for the cure by contributing online at http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/JeffGrant. Our ride is August 20 this year and we also covet your prayers for safety and health.
Thank you for your support!
We count each of you among our blessings!
