Friends and Family,
My name is Amanda Janecek and I've been living with Cystic Fibrosis for 16 years now. I am very excited to be the team leader of Amanda's Army this year, and I'm looking foward to raising money and awareness to help cure CF. Living with Cystic Fibrosis has greatly impacted my life in many ways. I have to do treatments and take numerous medications daily and go to quarterly doctor's visits to maintain my health. I believe living with Cystic Fibrosis has made me more responsible and has helped me realize how lucky I am to have a great, supportive family, close friends, and all the medical assistance I need. It has made me stronger which has carried over into my school work and sports. I want to raise money for not only me but everyone who has CF and is dealing with the struggles it creates in our lives.
My family and I have been greatly invested in raising money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and we've been participating for 14 years in the Great Strides Walk for a Cure. This year the walk is at the Houston Zoo on May 16th. I would greatly appreciate any support you can give. If you would like to participate in the Great Strides Walk for a Cure please sign up to join our team. If you are unable to join please consider donating to our team and sharing this information with others.
