My Great Strides Story
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them.
We walk for our son, Kevin, who battles CF. He is 20 years old and was diagnosed at the age of 3. His obstacles include respiratory infections, nasal polyps, breathing, coughing, and poor weight gain. A normal day includes multiple breathing treatments, digestive enzymes, vitamins, and tube feeding at night for extra calories.
