As most of you know, our daughter, Makinlee, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at birth. This a a life-threatening disease that takes too many young people each year. CF affects the lungs, digestive system and pancreas. Makinlee takes approximately 30 pills a day and spends hours a day doing breathing treatments and chest physiotherapy to be healthy.
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. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
