If you are new to Team Eddy, here is our story…Maureen & Kelly, now 24 and 21, were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis 21 years ago – a few days after Kelly was born. Each year since then, we have asked our friends and family to join us in raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). The CFF is our best hope for finding new treatments that will lead to better health and a long life for Maureen & Kelly.
Life with cystic fibrosis has been a bumpy road, filled with daily therapy, thousands of pills to swallow, doctors’ appointments, procedures and hospitalizations. Maureen & Kelly have navigated the ups and downs of that bumpy road like champions. In 2019, a new highly effective therapy for the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis was approved for people with CF who have the F508del mutation (Maureen & Kelly’s mutation). Since taking Trikafta, both Maureen & Kelly have experienced a huge improvement in their health. Today, Maureen is a college graduate and working full-time as a Vet Tech at the Hinesburg Animal Hospital. Kelly is a college senior and spending the fall semester abroad studying at the University of Galway, Ireland! We are grateful to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - and to our community of friends and family for helping to make these milestones happen for our family
We invite you to join us on September 17th, or if you can't make it to Burlington, make a donation to the CFF and walk wherever you are - every dollar helps. We are getting closer to realizing our dream of finding a cure for CF.
We are grateful for the support of our friends and family! Go Great Strides 2023!
