May is National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and also my 3 year anniversary working for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Oregon Chapter. When I joined the team here at CFF Oregon, I barely knew what cystic fibrosis was and did not know anyone personal affected by the disease. I used to say that I didn't have a personal connection to CF, but after three years of working with our volunteers and local community, I've met many people with CF who I now consider friends. This mission is personal now and I want to do everything I can to help people with CF so that CF can stand for Cure Found!
This year, and every year, I walk for all the families who still fight despite losing their loved one to cystic fibrosis, for all the families I currently work with who spend every day of every year living the realities of this disease and fighting for a cure, and for all the future CF warriors who will benefit from the medical breakthroughs we are helping to advance. I walk, but I can't do this on my own.
That's where you come in! The fight to find a cure will only be won when we work together. Help us add tomorrows by becoming either a walker or virtual participant on my team, sharing my fundraising page or your own fundraising page to raise money, or making a donation of any amount to help us find a cure! Every bit of awareness and every dollar helps get us one step closer to a cure!
Thank you in advance for your help in this fight!There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
