2020 was quite the year and I know that so many people are still dealing with the impact that covid has had on all our lives. But 2021 is looking better and as the vaccines become more accessible, we can all collectively see some light at the end of the tunnel!
As for me, 2020 was a big year of change, growth and some medical adventures. In the mist of the pandemic, I became a doctor, started an amazing job, and embarked on starting a company. 2020 was also the longest I’ve gone without a hospital stay! Almost a full year of avoiding the classic tune up… turns out social distancing and masks really help me keep the bugs away. I never thought that 32 would be such a milestone year for myself…. I continually reminded how thankful I am for the medicines and doctors that have kept this body going and thriving even during a pandemic.
When I was born the average lifespan of a person with CF was 18… now its 42!!! I used to think graduating college was my biggest achivement ahead, but now I'm dreaming bigger then ever before. This is due to YOU! All of your dollars go directly into help fund the research and medical advacements which have a direct impact.
While CF still receivers NO federal funding for research, great strides (the cf foundation) is still one of the primary ways research and medication gets funding… research and medications have allowed me to continue to thrive and feel hope. So, I’m asking, can you stand with me and lets raise some money and LETS HAVE CF STAND FOR CURE FOUND!
With love and joy.
