It has been over five years since I last participated in a Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides event, but I will be dusting off my walking shoes & joining Sauber’s Strength this Sunday.
While a board member of the West Tennessee chapter I had the privilege of meeting many individuals & hearing their CF story. Most of you know I walked in honor of and now in memory of my friend Tony. A double lung transplant recipient in 2000 provided 15 bonus years of having him in our lives. During this time he graduated from law school, married & became a father.
Progress of treatments the last few years has been amazing, the life expectancy has doubled in the last 30 years, but there is still no cure. I ask you to consider donating to the fight to make CF stand for Cure Found.
