In 2010 our daugher Lilly was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Like any concerned parents, we were worried and scared about what the illness was and how we could help her. Our family found a great amount of support and information once we contacted our local chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They provided us with a great network of doctors and medical facilities as well as information on how to manage her illness.
Currently, 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. We walk for them and hope you will support us in our efforts.
While the current average life span has surpassed 36, real progress has been made in the search for a cure. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.
Will you join us? Support us by making a donation or walking with us at our Great Strides Walk / Fundraising campaign today! Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please forward this message to help us continue to spread awareness!
Thanks for all your support!
The Knowles Family (Jason, Wynnter, Lilly, Mia, Evan, Owen, and Pacha)
