Our grandson Hayden has Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
CF is a genetic, respiratory and digestive disease. Currently, there is no cure for CF. Normally in May, Hayden’s Team participates in The Great Strides walk to raise awareness about CF and money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This has been canceled, and instead a virtual walk will be held May 15. We are asking for your help by making a donation on behalf of Hayden's Team. Your donation will make a difference for Hayden and other people with CF.
The CF Foundation is crucial in helping Hayden and the CF population. The many medications and therapies that help keep Hayden healthy are a direct result of seed money given by the CF Foundation to the pharmaceutical companies.
Hayden works really hard every day to keep himself healthy: nebulizer treatments, two 30-minute vibrating vest treatments, pancreatic enzymes that help him absorb nutrients from food, vitamins, and other medicines (over 20 pills) every day. If Hayden catches a cold or has a cough, he goes on antibiotics and does extra breathing and vest treatments to ward off lung infection. Getting plenty of rest and exercise is also very important. Despite his daily routine, Hayden excels in school and sports. His brothers look up to him as their role model. Sawyer wants to play sports “just like Hayden” and his brother Colin wants to be a scientist “to find a cure for CF for my brother.” You can imagine how concerned we all are about Hayden during the coronavirus epidemic.
Today we are asking for your help! Yes...with your help Hayden's future can look brighter than we could have ever imagined when he was born. We don't have a cure yet - Even though Hayden is doing great today, at any one of his 4 yearly checkups he could be told things have changed - there is no guarantee for him for tomorrow.
Yes…. Hayden needs your help! Donate to Hayden's Team by clicking above (DONATE TO DENNIS AND JULIE)
