Hi family & friends! Thank you for joining us in our fight against cystic fibrosis and sharing our goal for More Tomorrows for Reilly. We are so grateful and blessed to have so many people come together and support us.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short.
Reilly is almost 8 years old. He is active in baseball and soccer, going to the beach, creating art, and being on the boat! He wants to build boats when get grows up.
We are thankful he has not visited the hospital this past year!
Reilly takes numerous steps each month and day to stay healthy:
750-how many pills Reilly take’s every month. He takes these before each meal in order to give his body the ability to absorb fat and nutrients from food.
54-average life expectancy for someone who has cystic fibrosis
60-how many minutes a day are devoted to breathing treatments. (120 minutes/day when sick.)
60-how many minutes a day are devoted to Airway Clearance Treatments when healthy. (80 minutes when sick.)
9-how many medications and supplements he is on to help his body function
7.5-years old, how old Reilly is
Just because he doesn't display more direct symptoms doesn't mean that CF isn't making its mark on him. Cystic fibrosis is quiet and stealthy.
We hope you can join us on May 13! Reilly is excited to be with his friends and family :)
Thank you all so much - The Gardner's
