It is that time of year again! Time to show our support for one tough little boy and our ultimate superhero.... JACKSON! He proves how tough and strong he is each and every day!
Jackson was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 4 weeks old and has been fighting this fight like a little Balboa in training each day. With every doctor’s appointment, breathing treatment, medication or chest compression... he still smiles through it all.... well most of the time! He did not do anything to deserve this terrible disease, he was born with it and has to struggle each day.
We take for granted the simple things in life, like breathing. He will never know what it is like to not breathe without a struggle unless a cure for CF is found!!
Your support keeps hope alive for our family! Our family, friends, doctors, nurses and many more are truly angels sent from above! Everyone works tremendously hard every day to raise awareness, funds and knowledge to find a cure for this devastating disease! We all love Jackson so very much and want nothing but for him to live the longest and fullest life possible!
I have no words or ways to show the gratitude, love and appreciation that we have for each of you. No one knows what the future holds… But with your support, we can only hope that a cure for this disease is found!!!
So let’s lace up those walking shoes, put on our masks, tie on our capes and have some fun raising money and awareness for CF!!!

Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
