I was first introduced to Cystic Fibrosis after I started dating my husband, Brad, who's cousin, Matthew with CF. I didn't quite completely understand it until a friend had her first born son and was diagnosed two weeks after he was born. A few years later and her second son was also diagnosed with CF.
Hans is now age 7, Jackson is 5 years, and Matthew is 21 years old.
I have learned a lot in the last seven and a half years and I strive and hope that one day CF can stand for Cure Found. The three CF Warriors I know are near and dear to my heart which is why I choose to fundraise and volunteer within the foundation.
More Information on CF provided by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:
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. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Breakthrough treatments have added years to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Today the median predicted survival age is close to 40. This is a dramatic improvement from the 1950s, when a child with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school.
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 fundraising today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.
Please support me!
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 groundbreaking research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
