What a year it has been since our last fundraiser! This whole COVID thing made everyone's lives more complicated.... people have to stay 6 feet apart, wear masks in public places, can't have big gatherings especially if someone could be sick, can't travel like they want to.... very inconvenient you may say... Oh wait, that's pretty much a normal life of people with CF even before the pandemic. Except now we have to be more cautious because we don't know what COVID could mean to people with CF. For us this past year meant virtual school for Abby to keep her safe, no travel, staying away from crowds. Her dreams got crushed when her "wish" trip got postponed but we are still hopeful she will get her wish when it is safe. For now we are trying to be positive and hope for the best in these unpredictable times. Below is Abby's story. Thank you so much for your support.
Our daughter Abby was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was only one week old. From then on it has been a roller coaster kind of journey. From sweat tests to DNA tests to treatments and check ups every 2-3 months kind of journey. She had her fair share of struggles to gain weight like the doctors wanted her to, respiratory infections that kept us praying her lungs wouldn't get worse, and doctors' visits that absolutely terrified her when she was little. She is almost 11 now over her fear of the doctors and procedures. Well maybe except throat cultures because she still doesn't like those :-))
She loves summers and swimming in the pool. She loves her stuffed animal Cedric who's been by her side and traveled lots of places with her.
This year we are walking to support Abby and all others who battle Cystic Fibrosis on daily basis. She appreciates every one of you who can join her team, donate or walk for cure.
