I would like to first tell you all about the most amazing person I have ever known...My Bubba! He was and will always be my inspiration in life...he taught me to never take anything for granted and to live each day like it could be your last. He instilled in me from a very young age all the things wonderful about life (laughing, family, friends, love, etc.) - he had a very amazing presence and I know everyday he is still with me. I hope as I walk through life with my own children I am instilling the very things he did for me. This year I am once again participating in the Great Strides walk (after too long of a hiatus) and I am raising donations in honor of my Bubba. We lost my Bubba to his fight against CF in September of 2000. Being diagnosed at a month old in 1974, we all were pretty well educated about CF and what the outcome could be. My Bubba blessed us all with his courage and commitment towards finding the cure for this disease. He never gave up on finding a cure for this disease that took him from us...so I won't either!
Bubba...I hope I make you proud still today and I know we will one day be together again, but until then, I will walk for you along with my family of lilblanks. We speak of you often, maybe too much in some peoples eyes, but my kids deserve to know the type of man and person you were. I tell them about how great your laugh was and how funny and caring you were. I remember when Jolie was a baby and Scott was telling her...you remember your Uncle Bubba...you're an Angel and he was up there with you (cause he's an Angel ,too) until he decided to send you to Us...Scott looked at me and said...she knows who her Uncle is!! And, I believe that...Thank you for keeping her and all my lilblanks safe for us until you & God decided to send them to Us!!! We Love you very very much!!!

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. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been 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 today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
