We're excited to create a team of friends and family to walk with Great Strides for the first time this year!
We were introduced to CF when Brett was only a few weeks old. With no family history, it was quite a shock. But our girl has already - in such a short period of time - proven herself to be strong, brave, and a fighter in the face of a lifelong disease.
Brett has smiled her way through CF clinics and treatments, taking medication without hesitation and giving gummy grins behind her inhaler mask. You'll often catch our family dancing around the kitchen while performing Brett's CPT to help her maintain healthy lungs, with our girl giggling and bopping to the beat of her chest percussor. Her big sisters can make her belly laugh even after the toughest and longest days at Children's Hospital. We're amazed by her perseverance at just 7 months old and strive to match it. There is just no doubt that our baby B's peaceful demeanor and easygoing nature will serve her well as she overcomes obstacles and tackles challenges throughout her journey with CF.
While we never would've wished this for our daughter, we're so grateful for the perspective and positivity it has brought to our family, which is why we are excited to have a celebratory day at the Great Strides walk with our family and friends! It has meant so much to have our people rally around us as we navigate our new normal, and Brett has an incredible crew of supporters.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is leading the way in the fight against CF, making extraordinary medical and scientific progress towards new and existing therapies as well as research towards finding a cure. We've personally worked with the CFF on multiple occasions and have been amazed at their commitment towards this unique group of people. Donations like yours will directly help Brett, as well as others with CF, live longer, more normal, and more fulfilling lives, and potentially bring revolutionary change. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
If you are local and want to join our team to walk with us, we'd love to see you!
