Hello from Team Erissa!
Our 14 year old granddaughter, Erissa, was diagnosed at two weeks of age with Cystic Fibrosis. First of all, it was a shock to look at this perfectly beautiful little newborn and then realize that there is no cure for this horrible disease that effects the lungs and digestive system. With time, more complications such as diabetes and liver problems can occur as well as many other health problems.
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!
