As a graduate student in the Masters of Sport Administraton program at Ohio University, I am specifically raising money for Lilly's Sunshine and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Kathy and Lilly Straley an Athens, OH native family who are directly affected by CF. Lilly continues to battle Cystic Fibrosis every day and all of the money raised will go directly to Lilly's medical bills as well as research for a cure for CF.
Lilly is 12 years old and loves life, her friends, her family, and horses. Lilly also lost her father at the age of seven, so her and her mom are balancing a variety of needs. Behind the scenes, Lilly takes hundreds of pills each week and spends hours each day doing lung therapy to fight off losing the ability to breathe. Lilly has two rare and complex mutations that haven’t seen the progress many patients have enjoyed. The foundation has made so much progress, but we need to fight for a cure with your help.
On a grander scale, there are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe.
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much work to do. I will not stop striding until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
