Hi! My name is Julia Schachter and I have cystic fibrosis. I am a senior in high school and I’m going to be transitioning to an adult hospital this year. I wanted to join this years Great Strides Walk to help raise money for the CF Foundation.
I have been hospitalized countless times for “tuneups” starting in just 5th grade. A few times my sister and I were admitted together, but more often than not I would stay by myself for most of the visit. I want people to know the reality of CF when you have other siblings.
We started a T-shirt campaign to help our team raise money. Thank you for every donation, little or large. We appreciate everyone who helps us reach our goal.
