Support Grace’s Gang and Help Add Tomorrows!
Did YOU know…there are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe.
It's hard to believe we have been blessed with 7 years of good health and great adventures with our spunky little Miss Grace and we even through the troubled times of the COVID pandemic!
We are super excited to meet IN PERSON at the walk again this year! Mark you calendar for May 15th at SIUE. We also will have some fun family festivities at our house after the walk TBD closer to the date!
As most of you know or can witness through pictures...Grace is our hard headed little girl with a "do it herself" attitude, she keeps us all on our toes and never a dull moment. We try to make her day as normal as possible, even though she gets up almost an hour earlier every day to do her vest therapy and is consuming around 36 pills each day with meals, snacks and supplements. We are impressed with her ability to down 7 pills at a time before I can even get her a drink to wash it down. Vest therapy again in the evening, sometimes with added nebulizer treatment from her friend "Sami the Seal." She takes her routine like a champ. This is just the extra that our family deals with and it will continue to be our life until we find a cure for those living with cystic fibrosis.
Grace started taking Trikafta (the wonder drug for CF) this past fall...it is still early to see dramatic change because we have been blessed with realtively good health already but we pray that with this amazing medication that we will continue without decline in function and her body could potentially work like a "normal" non CF person at some point down this crazy road of life!
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is an amazing organization which has made tremendous progress over the years through research and development with medications and treatments for those who have CF. Because of the Foundation and support from people like YOU...Grace and her fellow CFers are making history! BUT there is still no cure for this devastating disease. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much to do. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found.
Please support Grace and all those families impacted by CF. We invite you to make a donation and help us raise funds to support the CF Foundation’s mission of finding a cure and improving the lives of all those living with CF.
Love, Tyler, Kari, George & Grace Unterbrink
