As most of you know, over 3 years ago I tragically lost my best friend of 25 years and she left behind two babies, the youngest of which has Cystic Fibrosis. Take a look at this cover photo--I'll never forget that day. I'll never forget that day. It was her oldest son's birthday party and I asked her how she was dealing with life since Hazel's diagnosis and she replied, "We are in a good routine, I feel like we have a good handle on things, I just try not to worry about Hazel's future" as she looked at me with tears welled up in her eyes. We hugged back in the nursery as she showed me all of Hazel's gorgeous smocked gowns.
We agreed that God had a purpose and big plans for Hazel, but had no clue that less than 3 months later Julie would lose her life. To say that this fundraiser means a lot to me is an understatement. This little girl is the flesh and blood of my dearest and longest best friend. Hazel's life is truly at the mercy of modern medicine and medical advancements. So please, join our team. If you cannot donate any $$$, just join our team and share the page, because awareness is half the battle! Most importantly, will you commit to praying for Hazel?
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much work to do. I will not stop striding until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. Will you join me? Please consider donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
