Our Great Strides Story
What does Cystic Fibrosis mean to us??EVERYTHING!!
Anthony is our loving, adventurous little boy that everyday fights the odds against Cystic Fibrosis. Anthony was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before birth, so he's been our little fighter since he was in the womb! Like any little boy not much can stop him, but with CF it can still take a toll on him. Anthony has had his fair share of ER visits, numerous doctor visits, and hospital stays. His resilience and bravery is why we fight so much for him and for everyone out their also battling with this devastating disease.
Our strong little boy takes various medications daily, along with 2-4 breathing treatments, since he was about 5 days old. He has truly been the definition of strength and resilience in our family. Although taking enzymes before each meal isn’t his favorite thing in the world he takes it like a champ every time! The support of all our friends, family, and our CF community, has truly helped us along this journey. It really does take a village!
This will be our 2nd year joining Great Strides, and were just so excited to spread awareness not only for Anthony, but for all those who have CF or have a loved one with it. All we want for them is a cure. There has been so much progress made for those with Cystic Fibrosis, but there still isn't a cure. So we wont stop fighting!
We appreciate any and all positive energy and support along the way! So we would love everyone to join AJ’s A Team on June 3rd to walk with us in Great Strides.
