Andrew was born November 2013 with an intestinal blockage that required surgery immediately after delivery. As he recovered, we learned that Andrew has two copies of the df508 mutation and has cystic fibrosis. After 12 weeks in the NICU and two intestinal surgeries, Andrew is growing and thriving. He loves cars (and trains, playing outside, and playing with superheroes and Legos. Most days you would never know that he is sick, but he works hard doing his breathing treatments and taking his medicines every day to stay as healthy as possible!
Cecilia, Our newest CF Fighter had a much easier start to her life with CF. We work hard to keep her as healthy as possible!! She gives great snuggles and loves to laugh and play with her big brother and sister! She loves Me-me (Mickey Mouse) and Go (Frozen).
We are hopeful that through continues funding and research, a cure for CF will be found in their lifetimes!
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.
