Our Great Strides Story
Our CF story started out in April of 2018. Before then Cystic Fibrosis was something that we had only heard of in health books. Bridger was our fourth child and when he was born everything seemed to be great. But everything changed very quickly when he not only didn’t reach his birth weight but started to lose weight. He was admitted to McKay Dee hospital in May and by June after lots and lots of testing we received the news that our little baby boy had Cystic Fibrosis. We were thrown into a world of doctor appointments and daily treatments. Bridger is now five and he amazes us everyday how he handles everything that he has to do. He is a rockstar at sinus rinses and he will show you how awesome his button (gtube) is. Bridger loves trucks, riding his bike and playing outside. He is the sweetest and best role model to his little sister Emery. We welcomed miss Emery into our family in June of 2021. She is now almost two and has had the best big brother to look up to especially when doing treatments and all things CF. Emery loves being outside and is always on the go. She loves to play baby dolls and loves coloring……on everything ;) when Emery was diagnosed at just a week old Bridger has been right by her side and has been super excited to show her how it’s all done!
Bridger and Emery are the reason for the BE team but we are also a team of family and friends dedicated to helping find a cure for EVERYONE fighting Cystic Fibrosis.
Our team is driven by a dream that one day, every person with cystic fibrosis will have the chance to live a long, healthy life. You can help us reach that goal!
