The Bahrijczuk's (otherwise known as the Gunky Gang) continue to support our annual fundraising to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We will be walking in the Baltimore Great Strides. We will be raising money to support continued research and hopefully a cure for CF. This is our 24rd year participating in raising money for Cystic Fibrosis research but it is our 27th year finding out what CF is with the birth of our first daughter, Jodi. Our Gunky Gang grew with the births of Jamie and Joshua, also having CF.
Jodi started her 5th year as a Special Education teacher. She completed her Master's program at Loyola in Educational Technology. Jodi and Tyler just adopted a 15 year old dog named Missy Elliot. They are coming up on the year wedding anniversary!
Jamie is now working at the Holiday Inn as a Sales Manager. She moved to Federal Hill this past fall and is enjoying the city life. Jamie adopted a kitten named Cleo last winter. Jamie has been two and a half years lung exacerbation free and that is thanks to Trikafta!
Joshua is in his junior year at Salisbury University and is majoring in Media Production with a minor in Film. He is the treasurer of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He continues to enjoy all of his outdoor activities of fishing, kayaking, frisbee golf, pickleball and surfing.
Real progress was made in October 2019 when the FDA approved Trikafta. Though it is not a cure, the kids lung function and absorption have improved greatly. All three of my children have been greatly impacted for the better by this miracle drug. Trikafta would not be made possible without the support of the CF Foundation and fundraisers like Great Strides.
I will not STOP STRIDING until all those with cystic fibrosis have a CURE. Will you join me? Please consider donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Please support US to make CF stand for Cure Found!
