Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that attacks the respiratory and digestive systems of thousands of children and adults in the U.S. Patients born with CF live a life full of doctors' appointments, daily therapy routines, handfuls of pills ingested at each meal, and often many hospital visits.
At this time, there is NO CURE for Cystic Fibrosis!
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) wants to change that. They are a non-profit organization striving to find cure. They work solely with funding made possible by donors and are at the front of the research and advancements that have been taking place since 1955.
"Walk today. Add tomorrows. Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. More than 250,000 walkers come together each year as one community for one cause...to help find a cure for CF."

So Why are we Involved with CFF???
One Word...HARPER! Harper is our 5 year old daughter. She was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was 3 weeks old. Before her diagnosis, we personally knew very little about Cystic Fibrosis and what it meant for people living with this terrible disease. We made the decision early on that we wanted to change that for others. We are fighting to raise awareness. We are fighting to find a cure. We are fighting for our baby girl!
We would love for you to join us in this fight.
1. Pray daily for a cure.
2. Join our team and help spread awareness.
3. Come help us represent Team Harper's Hope at the September 22 walk in Gallatin, TN.
4. Make your own personal page and raise funds/awareness.
5. Donate to our team. Any amount helps!
Please support us!
We have set a team goal of $5,000.
