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, 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've been hospitalized a few times too. However, 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 not only myself but for 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 in the annual Great Strides Walk for a Cure for 14 years. Due to COVID-19, this year we will not be able to walk in person. That doesn't lessen our commitment or the need raise funds though. I realize these times are difficult for everyone, but please consider donating to our team and sharing this information with others. My family and I greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us find a cure.
