Parker's Platoon is back for our 10th year of raising money for Cystic Fibrosis, CF. As most of you know, our son Parker was diagnosed at birth with Cystic Fibrosis. Everyday our family wakes up hoping for a cure for this life shortening disease. The fact is there has been amazing progress in medicine allowing several with CF to live longer fuller lives, but that is only for some, not all. There are just over 30,000 people living with Cystic Fibrosis in the United States, more than 700 living in Indiana. We fight every day for a cure and we need your help to get it done!
Parker is now 10 years old and is growing so fast and changing everyday, but what hasn't changed is Cystic Fibrosis. Every day Parker still has to take 15 pills just to digest what he eats, complete 2 separate 30 minute sessions with his therapy vest (jiggles), take vitamins and take his new medicine, Kalydeco. Parker doesn't have to do all of these things because he is sick, this is the life of a healthy person with CF. If someone with CF gets sick, a lot of these medications and therapies triple and may include being confined to a hospital bed.
This year we are back to walking in person for our annual Great Strides Walk. This year we will be walking at Victory Field in Indianapolis! The walk will be held on May 7. Will you join us this year?
