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. One of those is Livi, my baby girl (who is not such a baby anymore). This year we celebrated her 11th birthday. 11 years with the toughest chick I know. Livi is shy yet loud, she is reserverd yet crazy, she is serious yet a jokster. Only those who really know her,know what a colorful and determinded person she really is.
Last year, Livi participated in a trial for Cystic Fibrosis. That trial was for one of the biggest breakthroughs in CF. The medicine is now FDA approved and she takes it twice a day. If it was not for donation to CF, the advacments in treatments would not have been made.
We are thankful for all of the strides that have been made towards a cure for CF. One day we pray that all of these treatments which include, over 40 pills a day and over two hours of treatment are no longer needed for Livi to stay healthy. While she has made tremendous growth since last year we will not be in the clear until there is a cure.
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!
