Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, progressive and chronic genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. It often leads to double lung transplants. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, liver and other organs. My sons Colton (4) and Jase (10 months) have to take enzymes before every feeding in order to digest their food. They take up to 21 pills a day. They undergo throat swabs to check for infection, take inhaled antibiotics, do multiple breathing treatments a day to open up airways and then have Chest Physiotherapy. All of that is done when they are “healthy”. If they get a common cold their breathing and chest physiotherapy treatments have to double and additional medication is subscribed.
Moments after Colton was diagnosed our life took a drastic change and we vowed to do anything and everything we possibly could do to play a part in finding a cure for CF. On May 15th 2021, I’m leading a team (Hunting for a Cure) in the Great Strides walk in Columbus,OH, to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The CFF doesn’t receive any government funding, leaving it up to personal donations from individuals and gracious businesses such as your own to help assist us in our efforts to find a cure for our sons and the 70,000 other individuals suffering from Cystic Fibrosis.
We would greatly appreciate it if you would be able to help us meet our team fundraising goal by sponsoring us with a donation!
