"Dum spiro spero: While I breathe, I hope."
Meet our special guy Caden! Caden was born 5 years ago with cystic fibrosis, a rare progressive genetic disorder that affects the lungs and pancreas. As Caden will fight this for the rest of his life, we hope to engage our community and grow awareness. Many new drug therapies, like Orkambi and Trikafta, have been developed over the last few years to help CF warriors like Caden. Our hope is that Trikafta will become available to Caden soon! This research is made possible because of the fundraising efforts of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Great Strides Walk. Every dollar donated makes a difference! Despite the new drugs, Caden still needs about 6 breathing treatments a day. He wears his inflatable vest hooked up to a machine 3 times a day. In spite of all of that, Caden is a happy, well-adjusted little warrior! Caden’s Parents, Jeff and Gina, along with brothers Cameron, Casey and Logan invite you to join us to Fight for a Cure! This year Great Strides will be a virtual event on Saturday, May 20, 2023. Join our Great Strides Team to walk with us or you can make a donation to any team member.
Join our team and help add tomorrows to Caden's life, along with the lives of all affected by Cystic Fibrosis! We are grateful for each one of you!
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!
Please support me!
