REID'S CREW ......
Reid’s Crew is a national team for the Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis. Since the very early age of 10 months old I have been honored to take part in this walk which is the third weekend in May every year to support my friend Reid and all those that live with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). This year the walk again is being held virtually for safety reasons. Reid is the very first friend I had in my life. He and I were next door neighbors in the hospital for the first few days of our lives and have been friends ever since. Reid has cystic fibrosis and I am part of Reid’s Crew team and I join in on the Great Strides walk every year and try and raise lots of money so hopefully a cure can be found for Reid and all those other patients, families and friends who are impacted by this disease.
I am currently 11 years old and I will turn twelve on July 14th. Reid and I share the same exact birthdays. For Reid, 2021 is a BIG year!!! It is a big year because when when we celebrate our birthdays this July 14th and Reid turns 12 this means that he is eligible for a drug to help him try and fight this nasty disease. Trikafta was approved by the FDA in October of 2019 for CF patients ages 12 and older and on our birthday this year Reid will be able to take his first dose!!! While this isn't a cure for Reid and others who have CF it's the closest thing CF patients have ever had and Reid and his family couldn't be more excited. According to Reid's Mom this is science at work and our donations helping to fund these exciting treatments for CF patients.
I have set a pretty ambitious goal this year of raising $4,000 to help my friend Reid as he celebrates a big year in his life. If you are able to donate please do so at my fundraising page and donate online. https://fightcf.cff.org/site/TR/GreatStrides/100_Northern_New_England_Nashua?px=1634405&pg=personal&fr_id=8554
I hope you can help me help my friend Reid and all others who battle CF on a daily basis.
Thank you and stay well!
