Look at this guy, turning 10 in March and walking in his 11th Great Strides walk to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis!
He loves playing basketball, making movies, playing the piano, drums, playing video games and hanging out with his buddies. Beckett knows he has Cystic Fibrosis and he knows it's a fight he will have the rest of his life.
He battles every day by taking lots of medicine and spending hours doing airway clearance therapy. He is very patient at his quarterly checkups and brave when he does his PTFs, X-rays, and blood draws. Beckett is doing all he can do at his age to fight CF. This year he began taking Symdeko, the drug we have been fundraising for. This drug attacks the disease on a cellular level. So far he has been responding well to the treatment and has avoided hospitalization again this year.
We are always trying to stay in front of Beckett's health. It takes monthly, weekly, daily and hourly discipline. Beckett's continued health is a fantastic reward for our efforts but there is more we can do, like this annual fundraising for medical research. It is empowering to know that we can be a part of finding a cure for CF and increasing the life expectancy for everyone with CF.
We are so grateful for everyone who has supported us once before and for those of you who make an annual donation. This year is just as important as years past, this year we have a chance to make a statement in the Portland Great Strides by celebrating that our team has raised $350,000 in 10 years!
Every donation to Beckett's Team will be matched by the Tim and Nan Corwin Charitable Trust Foundation.
Thank you so much, Sean, All and Beckett
