GreatStrides for Cystic Fibrosis
This year I spent alot of time in thought regarding several CF survivors.....Cora's friends, who still fight this terrible disease. So few she knew are still alive....only 3! The only ones alive are the ones who got dbl lung transplants and this year 2 of them needed kidney transplants, Lindsey is still waiting and Allie received a gift of life from a close friend...one of his kidneys! 1 other friend, Brent, just received a 2nd double lung transplant 2 days ago so that he can live on. What strong fighters they all are! The strongest people I have ever met are CF patients. They start life fighting and they never stop, till the day they die. It's important that family and friends of CF patients that have lost our battle with CF help keep this cause alive for those existing patients who are still in this fight for life. Join us. See date and time info below.
The Life4Cora Team is a National team. We are in 3 different states with Great Strides Walks. In addition to our Orlando walk, there is one led by Gina/Kyra/Morgan in Ohio and Joann in Tenn. Cora's cause has been represented in several biking events in several locations in the country, and a special Iron Man Competition in Colorado by her cousin, Derek, was undoubtedly the most wonderful tribute. Derek, inspired by her, trained for a full year, always thinking about the challenges she had to just breath. It gave him the strength and drive to push beyond what most could never do. His video with his personal tribute to her, so sweet. How pleased Cora has to be looking down on us all. She may be gone from this life, but her spirit lives on in the ones she touched here! I'm so proud of the fight she fought!
