Over 7 years ago, I found out that the infant son of one of my best friends had been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I didn't know what that was, but I knew it was bad. I didn't know what to do but be supportive to my friend, talk to people about CF and try to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so we could get a cure found for this terrible disease. I couldn't cure it, so I walked. I've walked with friends, I've walked with family, and I've walked iwth my own babies. While I felt all the pain in the world for IV's family 7 years ago, now that I have my own children, I can't imagine the pain they go through every day dealing with a sick kid. Having Elise and Addie makes me want to try harder to get CF to mean CURE FOUND so that no one else needs to go through the pain and sacrifice that the Shaw's make EVERY SINGLE Day.
So... I'm going to walk again. I'm going to keep walking until IV doesn't need me to anymore.
Please help me help CFF and the Shaw family. Walk with me, or donate to my Great Strides Walk. Or both!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
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.
Please support me!
