It’s CF Walk time!!!!
This is one of my favorite days of the year! To most, it’s just a basic Saturday in May. But to me… it’s the one day I get to be celebrated for having a disease I didn’t choose to have. It’s the one day I feel a part of this amazing community…
Don’t get me wrong I feel that way daily… but when you can’t be with people who have disease this on a regular basis, it can feel isolating. It’s the one day a year part of my support system gets to stand by my side and pray with me. Everyone does it daily… and for that, I want to say thank you. But it means so much so many of you being with me to do it at the walk!
My CF team name is “I Breathe For @CF.Warriorprincess”… that’s what the shirts say… but mine… it says “I am @CF.Warriorprincess”. I love the Name. It’s also my instagram name! My whole life I have been called the CF Warrior Princess by family and friends. I love that my teams shirts say “I breathe for…” it helps me know the support is really there. Seeing the flood of green shirts brings me to tears yearly… the support… it all means so much.
This year’s CF walk is met with MANY feelings. I’m so excited because it’s the first year in 2 years that we are back in person! But it’s also my first in-person walk without my Mom… my biggest supporter and best friend. So many mixed emotions.
If you do want to walk with us on May 21st at the Cleveland Zoo… register under my team at myleefruits.com
You guys are truly the best support system ever. I will forever be in awe of the support you guys show my family. Thank you for the constant prayers and encouragement for me and my family! We love you guys!
