Why am I doing this?
With 50 years of T1D on the books, I knew there was potential for organ damage but nothing prepared me for the effects of a simple respiratory issue that overwhelmed my healthy heart and kidneys but I was never so terrified as when I couldn’t breathe while hospitalized. Now I can’t imagine what life for a child with CF’s breathing challenges, as well as other organ threats, especially my favorite - the pancreas, could be like. Thanks to the CFF’s novel fundraising approach, the resulting treatment advances in the 3 1/2 years since Cullen was born make me hopeful the impact on his life will lessen, if not eventually dissipate, and that’s why I joined Team Cullen. Please swing by the Team Cullen page to learn a bit of what's involved in his daily life and what his admirable parents and my cousins Ashley and Mike have done to ensure Cullen thrives
Thank you in advance for your support whether it be financial, spiritual or a green jello mold ; )
