My son Charlie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was a newborn. We learned of his diagnosis after undergoing surgery for a bowel obstruction at three days old. The diagnosis came as a complete shock, as it does to many that have been given this news. My husband and I, as well as my family, have done everything within our power to make sure that Charlie remains happy and healthy. Our goal is to carry that on throughout his life! The team of doctors that we see at Rainbow Babies and Childrens Hospital, have given us hope that a cure for Charlie is around the corner.
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.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
