Hello, my name is Jaycee Glover. I am the 21 year old daughter of Broc and Molly Glover and the only sibling of 18 year old Dayne Glover. I want to also thank you for taking these few minutes to read my message/plea.
As many of you may know my brother Dayne was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at age 5. Cystic Fibrosis is a progressively degenerative disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and young adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). Even with many positive medical advancements for CF, there are still children today dying in their teens and currently life expectancy of a CF sufferer is only in their 40's. This figure has been on the rise recently but with modern science I know we can do better!
Living with CF requires Dayne to spend many hours every day tethered to machines receiving treatments and therapy in an attempt to stay as healthy as possible but even doing all of his treatments and medications doesn't always work and Dayne has undergone multiple surgeries and has been hospitalized many times.
Since there are not a lot of people with the disease (in the government's eye), Cystic Fibrosis research receives zero government funding. This is why the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.CFF.org), who is the major contributor for all CF research, holds their annual Great Strides Walks in the month of May.
On Sunday, May 3rd, at Moonlight Beach I will be leading Team DayneGerous in a walk along the coast to raise money for this very important cause. Because of generous people like you giving what they could afford, Team DayneGerous raised an astonishing amount - over $30,000! I would love to set our goal to $40,000 this year.
Please help me raise money for a cure so Dayne and others can be rid of this horrible disease. CF doesn't only affect my brother; it affects our whole family including me.
From the bottom of my heart I am asking you to PLEASE support my Great Strides Walk team and help my brother Dayne and others who suffer with CF.
It is very easy and only takes a few minutes and you can put it on a credit card.
