Reese, our precious granddaughter, is now 13 years old! What a beautiful young lady! Reese is in the 7th grade at the middle school and is a great student! She enjoys playing basketball (Travel and AAU) and is a great player! She puts her heart and soul into everything she does! Reese fills our hearts with love every single day! We love her so much!
As you may know, Reese has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that affects the lungs and pancreas. We are blessed that Reese is a happy, energetic 13-year-old with an incredible zest for life despite having to endure the challanges a young teenager with cystic fibrosis faces on a daily basis. She has 40 minutes of treatments before school and 30 minutes in the evening every day. She takes enzymes before meals and snacks to help with digestion. She visits the CF clinic every 2 months and routinely has blood work, x-rays and tests. She does all this without complaint! What a feat....especially for a teenager!
New drugs like Trikafta, a triple-combination therapy was approved by the FDA in 2019 for patients 12 years and older. We are happy that Reese qualified for this treatment in July 2021. What a difference this had made for her! She breathes easier and coughs less. Your donations have helped make this possible! Although much progress has been made, there is still no cure. Our wish is that one day a cure will be found for our granddaughter, Reese, and everyone with cystic fibrosis! We need your help to make that happen!
Please join us at the walk on May 20,2023 and/or make a donation to our "Great Strides" fundraising campaign and help make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis! Please help to make CF stand for CURE FOUND! Your support means so much!
Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
Please note: For year 2023, the walk will be held at The Colonie Mohawk River Park, 71 Shermerhorn Road, Cohoes, New York.
