This is my THIRD year of walking with my team - and I am walking for ME; Plus, I have 4 beautiful kids and I am walking to keep myself healthy for them!!! One day there will be a cure, and I will be part of why. All of the studies, and pokes and tests will be totally worth it and I can't wait! For me, CF doesn't stand for Cystic Fibrosis... To me it means Continuously Fabulous; It will eventually mean CURE FOUND - and I know for a fact beings that it WILL happen! We are all part of this process and I cannot wait to see my cysters and fibros, be able to breathe!
I am walking because I don't know what a healthy day is. I am walking because my healthy is different from anyone elses. It's different from your healthy - and that's okay! God gave me this hand and I am running with it (figuratively speaking of course!). I am walking because I have 4 little ones who need me in their life. I am walking to be able to be here 40 years from now with my other half. I am walking to be able to see grandkids, and maybe even their grandkids. I am walking FOR ME. <3
So, help me fight and join us in this life long battle of trying to "breathe easy" and breathe healthy and breathe wonderfully! If you can't donate, no big deal. Come walk with us! If you want to donate, any amount will help go towards finding a cure for this, what some people call a disease - I call it a blessing... as funny as it may sound...
It is a blessing beings that someone else may not have gotten it, because they may not have been able to live the life I live. They may not have been able to deal with this crazy, medicine ridden, needle poking, surgery needing life. This life has pushed me to my limits and pushed me to the edge so much some days it can be crazy. But that's okay, God has given me this life to live for a reason, and I am determined to find out why and fight til my last breath! <3 So don't waste another minute - help us all in this fight and join in on the fun!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families!
Real progress has been 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 today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.
Please support me!
