As you probably know, I have CF. I was blessed to receive a double-lung transplant in 2011, but not all people with CF are eligible for transplants, and that's not a feasible treatment for many, especially at earlier stages of disease. There are some fantastic new promising treatments available. Please support the CF Foundation with your donation today to help fund the research for all the treatments yet to come.
This year is WEIRD, isn't it?! Rather than a walk-a-thon all together, the CFF has created Rally, Walk & Roll. Between August 12 and 22, I'll be walking 6.5miles (around double than a normal walk-a-thon, and in alignment with our celebration of 65 years of the CFF!) on my own, tracking it and sharing pictures, and then there is a drive-in movie set up to celebrate. (The drive-in is in Rhode Island, so I don't feel comfortable going, but I encourage anyone on my team who is interested to go!) This is probably the EASIEST year to participate, since there's no "I can't make that date" allowed! I'll be on an RV vacation around Massachusetts during that time, and I look forward to finding places to walk and ways to track my mileage. :) If you would like to join my team, just let me know or sign up for the Chelmsford "walk" and join the Panda Power team! The more the merrier!
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, as well as for myself, 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.
Please support me!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!
