Hello friends and family... It's that time of year again when I walk for Great Strides to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. My grandchild Julia was born with Cystic Fibrosis. This was something my son Dan Ferris and his wife Amanda Rose Coen knew early in the pregnancy. Jeanne Ferris and I certainly feel an investment in finding better treatments or better yet a cure for this disease. Julia is now one year old and doing very well. Living in Boston, she is getting the very best care possible. We will be participating in a series of walks in which we will be looking for you to either join our team or if possible sponsor our team with a donation. I know there are many different worthwhile causes out there that look for money or time from you everyday so I understand many of you will read this and click on to the next post. I hope a percentage of you will sponsor me in this walk and make whatever donation you can towards finding a better tomorrow for kids like Julia. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has a four star 91.69% overall rating with "Charity Navigator Rating"

so you can trust they will do very good things with your donation. On a personal note I want to thank all of you who donated last year to our team as we raised over $10,000 but the fight to cure this disease is still critical. There is NO cure for this disease nor is there any Federal funds ( nor do I expect any in the near future ) being given towards CF. I need you again to see if you can help me in my quest to raise money to improve the quality of life for those afflicted or to actually find a cure. Please, please, please do what ever you can for me... Walk with me... Share my link .... Make a donation to my team ... or just send me a positive message and show support for what I am trying to do for my grand-daughter and all of those people in America who share this terrible disease. Thank you ... thank you... thank you...
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.
Please support me!
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
