Dear Friends & Family,
Welcome to my "Great Strides - Cure Cystic Fibrosis" Personal Page. The cure for Cystic Fibrosis is very dear to my heart because two of our grandchildren, Giovanni & Briaja have Cystic Fibrosis. Giovanni is 8 years old and Briaja is 4. They are brother and sister. Both were diagnosed days after they were born and immediately began a regiment of medications and breathing treatments. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening disease. It is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestine. Long term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of lung infections.
Because there is no cure, families like ours, all over the United States, fundraise to bring awareness and financial support to the fight for a cure for our grandchildren and thousands of children and adults all over the country.
With Covid-19 still an issue this year, TEAM BRANCH and many teams around the USA are finding creative ways to continue awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. Great Strides Rapid City, SD will not host any in person events this year, but Great Strides in Sioux Falls, SD will host a "Car Parade for a Cure" on Saturday, June 5, 2021.
Please join us by being part of our Virtual Team. Click the link on the page to donate or Join TEAM BRANCH and be part of a cure for CF!
Thank you for your prayers, love and support! They mean so much to us!
