As some of you may know, our son Lucas was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth. Although this first year had its share of challenges, Luke has been doing great thanks to his wonderful family and care from our CF Clinic out of Boston Children's Hopsital. He celebrated his first birthday this year, and most likely will be walking, or running, the Great Strides course himself as he is on the move.
This year we'll be participating in our second annual Great Strides, in order to raise money and awareness about Cystic Fibrosis. The CF Foundation has already made a difference in our lives, by providing information and necessary medications to us and Luke. The money they raise goes directly to finding a cure, as well as drug development to improve lives today.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. If you can, please donate to team "Lace 'em Up For Luke", or join our team and walk with us on May 16th!
By joining our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. We will not rest until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. CF one day will stand for CURE FOUND! The time is now. Together, we can conquer this disease.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
