Emma Sue was born in August 2013 and we found out just three short weeks later, while she was in the PICU at McLane Children's Hospital, that she had been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. We have to work hard everyday to keep Emma healthy through breathing treatments and a myriad of other medications. She is a beautiful, spunky, strong 10 year old who can light up any room. We participate in the Great Strides walk to add tomorrows for her and all others living with cystic fibrosis.
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. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
