2020 was rough for all of us, but CF sure made it that much more difficult for sweet Audrey! She was hospitalized 4 separate times, 2 weeks every time. Each admission brought new Covid restrictions that meant no visitors, no leaving her room and no therapy puppies to come say hi. Saying it was hard is an absolute understatement and to top it off, we have added chronic pancreatitis to her CF ailments. This is incredibly painful and yet Audrey continues to smile through it all. She is such a true warrior and I am not exaggerating when I say she is a true hero.
Audrianna continues to be a CF warrior. After absorbing the diagnosis, Audrey and her family set out to fight this together with everything we have. However, we can't do this alone and are incredibly grateful to everyone for all of the support that has been provided through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Recently, Audrey was able to start a new medication called Kalyedeco, which we could not be more excited about! The CF foundation helped make this possible. This medication is costly and not a cure, however. We will continue to raise money to find a cure, so there are more tomorrows for sweet Audrey!
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 hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
