The CF Foundation's Great Strides walk to cure cystic fibrosis is coming up on Saturday, May 13, 2022 and we are meeting IN PERSON this year! We are so excited to welcome back our team to the Myriad Gardens Great Lawn!
The last few years were unprecendented and Sam has spent most of his days virtually. 2022 was a tough year for Sam with sickness from Covid to flu and pneumonia. Life certainly does look different today but the fight against CF remains unchanged! Sam was born with CF and diagnosed at two weeks old. He has spent that last 17 years preventing the symptoms of CF because as of now there is no cure for this rare genetic disease, but Sam is healthy and happy, driving his first car, enjoys science and engineering, skateboarding, and hanging out with friends playing video games. His dream is to one day become an engineer and pilot. Sam is hopeful for a cure and always tells me that his "magic pill" will be invented soon. I have this hope too because as a mom it's hard to watch your son take breathing treatment after breathing treatment, pill after pill and go see doctor after doctor. I know he will not have to do this for the rest of his life because there are people like you who care enough to help Sam fight this disease. But, Sam is not the only one fighting. 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 Sam and I hope you will support us in our efforts to raise much needed funds by May 7th!
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.
Thank you for your support of Sam’s Fam!
