This year we will be joining Great Strides in hopes to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. As some of you may know, Lucas was diagnosed with CF shortly after birth. This year CF became a little more real in our household. Shortly after his 2nd birthday we were approved for his therapy vest! It has been quite an adjustment but Lucas has been a superstar through it all. Even when he has said "no I dont want it", he will help me plug it in, put the vest on, and sit there until its done. Then when it shuts off he will yell "I Did it!". He even likes to take it all apart and put it away for us! We couldn't be more proud of him.
He also goes to Boston childrens every three months for his check ups! For the last 2.5 years he has had extreme doctor anxiety. I mean, I cant blame him! When you get lab work, xrays, throat swabs, and shots constantly I think we would all feel the same way. BUT his last visit in Boston he didnt even cry once! AND he opened his mouth willingly to let her do his throat culture!( I think momma cried a little witnessing that one.) We are so blessed to be so close to Boston Childrens, and recieve such amazing care. It's so nice to see the precautions they put in place to protect children with CF, in addition to receiving the top care and treatment!
There has been many breakthroughs in CF treatment recently that I truly believe a cure is coming. We are very hopeful a cure for Cystic Fibrosis will be found in his lifetime. Please consider donating, joining our team, and/or sharing this page ! Thank you all so much!
