In January 2009, our two- month old daughter, Tina, was officially diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Tina is a sweet, spunky, amazing, and brave 11 year old who fights everyday just to live and breathe.
CF is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that affects the lungs, digestive system, and other organs. No cure exists. However, scientists have made significant progress in the search for a cure, especially in recent years, and we have real reason to hope that, with enough funding, these scientists will develop drugs that eliminate or drastically reduce the symptoms for most or all those with CF in the coming years.
The research and drugs being developed through the backing of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are Tina's best chance for a normal and long life. For 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis. Tina's team – TEAM UNICORN -- will not only be walking for Tina, but for all those with CF.
Great Strides Columbia, a family-friendly 5K-walk, will be held May 2nd at Doko Meadows Park in Blythewood, SC. This fun event raises awareness for people with CF and their families and funds for research. Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to donate and ask others for support. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
We hope you will consider joining our team or making a donation. To register just click "join our team".
