This is our first Great Strides walk. Our son, Flynn came into this world on September 28, 2018 with guns blazing. Flynn is tenacious, full of energy and has the most contagious, crinkly-nose smile you will come across. While pregnant we found out we had a 1 in 4 chance that he would have CF, and at just a few days old he was diagnosed.
We walk to celebrate Flynn and the lives of others living with CF. There have already been so many breakthroughs in the short time Flynn has been here on earth, and we want to do our part keep those breatkthroughs coming.
For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
I walk for them. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short.
By walking with me in Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Please support me!
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
