For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
I walk for them. I walk, especially, for my sweet niece, Meredith McMahan Tucker (married to my amazing nephew, Travis Tucker). Mere has been bravely fighting CF since she was diagnosed at 7 months old. Despite this disease, she has managed to play golf collegiately (UT) and has a beautiful family: husband Travis and 5-year-old daughter Tinley. Mere is a fighter and is thankful and grateful for all the support the CF Foundation has given to her and the family. She will tell you that she is blessed and make you smile and laugh the whole time you're visiting with her. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
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.
By walking with me in Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Please support me!
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
