I am so behind!!! The date of the Great Strides Walk was changed from the Spring to the Fall this year. With that said, it snuck up on me and I apologize for the late request for donations.
In 2004 my husband and I found out that we are both carriers of the gene that causes CF, (*when two CF carriers have a baby, there is a 25 percent chance that their baby will be born with the disease.) I began to educate myself more about the disease and prepare for a future of treatments and possible hospital stays with my newborn baby. We were incredibly fortunate when Lola was born a healthy baby, free of the CF gene - but this didn't stop me from feeling like I had to do more. That's when I started Team Mayo and became involved in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Since my involvement with the CF community in 2004 real progress has been made, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We've come so far, but there's still so much work to do.
Please support me!
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal! ANY AMOUNT HELPS--and I thank you in advance for your kindness and consideration.
with love and gratitude - Kati
