It's the time of year again. We are participating in our 15th Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis this year! We walk to support the continued effort to find a cure for Karen & so many others affected by Cystic Fibrosis. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with this incurable disease. Progress in the research for a cure is very exciting & new drugs are now available to help in the treatment of CF, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short.
Karen is now 14 years old & is even more passionate about Irish Dance! She participates in as many shows, exhibitions & competitions as she can. She is advancing in her quest for champ rating. She does not give in to the many struggles due to CF but pushes through to remain active in her dance, church & school activities.
I need your help to meet my fundraising goal for this year's Walk. Your generous gift will support the Foundation’s mission to find a cure & improve the lives of people with CF, plus, your gift is 100 percent tax deductible.
