Our Xtreme Hike Story

Life is good
Life is good

Thank you for visiting our team page!

Perseverance!!  That is the word I use to describe my daughter, Breanna. She was born with Cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that affects every organ in the body and makes breathing difficult. Some people with the disease say it’s like breathing through a narrow straw. Not only does it affect the lungs, it affects the digestive system.  

In October 2019, Breanna spent a month in the hospital due to infections which caused her to have to drop out of school. Once out of the hospital, she was on oxygen full time and in February 2020, she spent a week at Duke hospital being evaluated for a lung transplant. She also started on a new drug, trikafta which was funded thanks to donations like yours. Since starting on trikafta, Breanna has gain 25 lbs, is only on oxygen at night, started back to school and graduated from ODU this August with a degree in psychology. 

Our team is participating once again in the xtreme hike October 3, a powerful hike that brings together so many wonderful people.  Those who have a love one with cf, those who have lost someone with cf and those who have cf themselves.  We hike for all of them.

We invite you to join our team, make a donation and help us raise funds to support the CF Foundation’s mission. 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.
