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.
About 10 months ago, my friend Joslin delivered the most adorable little girl. But there were complications, which ultimately led to a diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis for her sweet little Mackenzie. Like all parents, Joslin and her husband Trey want everything for their little girl, and they are the best parents she could have gotten. They have had to quickly learn and adapt their daily routines to care for Mackenzie, while they care for their other children too. I am one person in their huge village, but we ALL want to see a cure for this disease in Mackenzie's life!
I walk for them. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
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!
The 2-mile walk is at Indian Riverside Park on Friday evening, May 8th at 6:30 PM. If you can't walk, can you please make a financial donation to help? Any amount helps to find a cure.
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
