Every day, Jayla and Dylan fight a brave battle. I admire them so much and am in awe of their strength and wisdom. No child should have to fight every day just for the chance to run and play... and grow up. Because my kids have CF, they've known medicine, treatments and hospitalizations their whole lives. It's their normal, but the reality is that it is far from normal. That's why I walk... why I work to raise funds to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The Foundation is utilizing an innovative model to leverage donor support to encourage the development of new treatments with remarkable results. Promising new drugs are becoming available because of private funding. I want my children to be able to breathe easily, to run and play with their friends and be unencumbered by the burden of disease. I don't want them to miss out on the joys of life because they are too ill to participate. I want for them all the things we all want for our children.
I hope that you will consider supporting me as I strive to ensure that funds are available to support the important work being done in CF research. It is personal for me and my family. I am so grateful to the incredible support system that surrounds our family. You can help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. We hope you'll join us!
