I am a 6 year old living with Cystic Fibrosis. I am one of the lucky ones. My lungs, while they have some spider webbing, are relatively healthy and I've never grown the harmful bugs that do more damage.
But my pancreas doesnt work right. I take 450 Enzymes a month along with a Ant-Acid and vitamins. I love to play with people and started preschool early because I love learning new things and I can already write my name, and count past 20.
I also have major GI issues. I need to take medicine every day to help me have regular movements. If I miss medicine then I get very backed up and painful. It takes days for me to get back to normal and until I do I am in a lot of pain.
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.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
