Eddie & I had our 4th baby girl on April 20th of 2010. As if having a new born with 9 years between the last child was not challenging enough, we received some unfortunate news a couple weeks after she was born. Avery was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), which is a chronic genetic disease that affects her lungs & digestive system. 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. 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. We have learned a lot about this disease since Avery’s birth.
Despite living with this disease on a daily basis with multiple treatments & medicines, Avery continues to be a fun loving, energetic & active little girl that loves going to school & singing songs.
My family & I are trying to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This organization is trying to find a cure for this disease. Even though CF is the most prevalent genetic disease in the United States, it does not receive government funding like some other diseases; therefore, it is even more important to help raise money to find a cure for this deadly disease. With your help, we can find a cure! Please donate today!
