Hi! We are excited for another wonderful Great Strides event.
Ways you can help Team Andrew -
Walk with us on May 21 : If you plan to join us for the walk, register as a member of the team. This will allow you to fundraise for our team which is certainly not necessary but of course appreciated. Registering as part of our team registers you for the walk.
Make a donation to our team : If you are not able to walk with us, you can make a donation to the team.
Buy a shirt : We will once again be selling Team Andrew shirts. When the pop up shop opens I will share the link! $5 from every shirt goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation via Team Andrew.
Share your love with Andrew: Andrew endures more than most two year olds and we always want him to feel loved and supported through his CF journey. We appreciate the love and support we are shown more than you know! Just being there for our family in any way you can means so much to us.
Andrew was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was just a few weeks old. It has forever changed our family in so many ways. Cystic Fibrosis is sometimes referred to as an invisible disease meaning from the outside he looks like any other two year old. We feel very blessed that he has been healthy and has not had any major CF exacerbations. However that does not mean it is easy. Andrew takes roughly 10 pills a day, as well as two doses of a different medication. He also does two, twenty minute chest CPT therapies a day which include using a nebulizer for inhaled medication. There is a lot that goes into his care and it certainly takes its toll on us and on him. We do all of this to keep him healthy and will do anything else required of us. One day all of these responsibilities will fall to Andrew and that is heavy for a parent. Not only keeping up with treatments but CF is a progressive disease so his health may deteriorate as he gets older. This is why fundraising is so important to us. We won’t stop until there is a cure and these burdens and hardships are lifted from Andrews shoulders. We wish nothing more that for him to live a happy, healthy, and LONG life. Thank you so much for your support in that mission. ❤
