My daughter Katie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis 15 years ago. In spite of having CF, she's happy and healthy and you'd never know it looking at her. Still, maintaining her health is very demanding and involves taking dozens of pills and doing breathing treatments every day. As she gets older it's hard to fit it in with school and all the normal activities a girl her age is interested in, especially when she has to spend time in the hospital and misses school because she's sick.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is working on treatments that can help make all this easier. They also help fund the care centers and research on how to improve the lives of people with CF. My family has participated in Great Strides for 15 years and in that time we've raised over $35,000 through the generosity of people like you.
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.
