There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis (CF). They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. My family is dually affected by this genetic disease. My cousin, Kristen, has lived with CF for over 30 years and her brother, Keith, has a son (Cordell, who will be 7 at the end of this month) with the disease also.
I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. In the past, I have joined my family at a walk in Hagerstown, MD but we're trying to expand our team and I started a branch in Altoona. If you're near Altoona or Hollidaysburg, please feel free to sign up and join us!
I've seen the progress that has been made for those with CF but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today! Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with CF by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress. Your gift is 100% tax deductible.
