Delaney has been kept under the watchful eye of a pulmonologist since just a few weeks after birth. Recently, it was suggested that she starts treatment for Cystic Fibrosis. In a matter of two weeks - our every-day routine changed. Now, we do breathing treatments. We do chest therapy. We do Albuterol and Pulmozyme. However, this hasn't changed Delaney's free-spirit. It hasn't held her back. Her huge personality hasn't been made weaker. We're in the very beginning of our Cystic Fibrosis journey, and we're walking this year because despite groundbreaking advances, there still isn't a cure for CF.
Did you know?
That despite the medical and scientific progress that's been made, some CF patient's do not respond to existing therapies because their disease is already too advanced or their specific genetic mutations will not respond. These people are moms, dads, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day in the face of this disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
