Both of my children have CF. In years past we did the walk to raise awareness about CF and to help raise money for research. In 2011 we had more of a reason to help find a cure...my daughter Amberlyn passed away from CF. My son Phillip still continues to battle CF everyday. He has found his true love wotj Jessie. They got married on March 18, 2017 and now are trying to have a baby. :-) We need to find a CURE so they can live a long & happy life and build a family together!!!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I will walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Amberlyn was 22 years old when she passed away on November 18th, 2011. Her passing left a big void in our family. Amberlyn and her brother Phillip were very close. Before her passing, Amberlyn's main concern was her brother Phillip. She did not want her brother to have to go through what she was going through. It terrified her and she said that even though it was too late for her, we NEED to find a cure for her brother. No parent should ever have to lose a child or watch them struggle with a horrible disease such as Cystic Fibrosis.
The goal of our team "CF BOUNTY HUNTERS" is to raise $37,000.00 but we are hoping to raise even more than that.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. There are so many things that are promising for those that suffer with CF. But we need your help to continue that research. 90 cents of EVERY dollar goes to help finding a cure!!

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
