Holly Berlin was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 2 weeks old in 2015. She is the youngest of our 2 beautiful daughters. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects majority of the organs in her body. It produces a sticky thick mucas that ultimately makes it harder for her to breathe and digest food. From the moment we learned that she would be living with this progressive disease we made it our mission to give her the best life possible and fundriasing for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of many ways that we do so .
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. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal? Please consider joining our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis! This year we are doing a virtual walk that will start April 16 and run through May 16. We will be tracking all of our miles through the Runkeeper app and will be able to cheer each other on virtually. Our goal will be to get 650 miles ! Please message us for more information on how you can join our walk and receive one of our Holly's Heroes Virtual Walk Shirt !
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.
