After experiencing a day full of hope last year, we're excited to again create a team of friends and family to walk with Great Strides for the second time this year!
We were introduced to Cystic Fibrosis when Brett was only a few weeks old. With no family history, it was quite a shock. But our girl has already proven herself to be strong, brave, and a fighter in the face of a lifelong disease.
In her first 18 months, Brett has shown incredible resilience. She has smiled her way through CF clinics and treatments, taking medication without hesitation and smiling behind her inhaler mask. Our smart girl has already learned to count to 10 and sing the ABCs, thanks to the length of time she agrees to keep her nebulizer on her little nose! You'll often catch our family singing silly songs and reading books while crowded together around Brett's vest therapy machine to help her maintain healthy lungs, with our girl giggling along the way. 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 such a young age and strive to match it. There is just no doubt that our B's peaceful demeanor and easygoing nature will serve her well as she overcomes obstacles and tackles challenges throughout her journey with CF.
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!
