Welcome to Team Thomas - Great Strides Fundraiser Page!!!
It's so hard to believe that our Great Strides Walk is next month (this year it will be Great Rides...in our cars). So much exciting news has happened since last to us and remind us that he is taller than us. This year Thomas has started High School online and has been doing very well ( Jason and I feel like we are also doing better in high school this year compared to when we attended it the first time). Last August Thomas was granted his "Make A Wish" and got an AMAZING gaming computer, we were so excited for him at first, but then we only saw him when he was hungry. I guess we should expect this since he is a teenager!
Thomas has also been doing very well health wise. He was put on the latest medication called Trikafta on February 18th, 2020. It was a day our family will never forget because after one dose, Thomas told us he felt like he could breathe better and it was soon after that when we noticed his weight start to increase as well. It was in 2015 when we were about Trikafta and all the research that was going into this medication. Our families were beyond excited that Thomas could one day be on a medication that would improve his breathing and his overall health and five years later, he is on it! It is because of donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that Thomas is now on Trikafta and doing so well. For every dollar that is donated, 90% of it goes towards research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Our goal this year is to raise $5,000 and I know we can do it with your help! We want to tell Thomas one day that CF stands for "CURE FOUND," not Cystic Fibrosis!
Thank you everyone for your support for Team Thomas!
My family and I truly appreciate it!
Leah, Jason, Thomas and Jack
Keep Thomas Running!
