My Xtreme Hike Story
Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you so much for visiting my page.
Your time and donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is sincerely appreciated! You’re helping to find a cure and “add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with CF today.”
My family has personally been affected by this rare, life-shortening, genetic disease. Two of my sisters, Kariann and Jennifer, lost their battle to CF at a young age, and Jim and I want to celebrate their lives and bring awareness by hiking the Grand Canyon in their memory.
What is CF? This disease causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Sixty years ago, most children didn’t live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to foundation-based research and care, many people are now living into their 40’s.
While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short.
Please make a difference and support Jim and me by giving to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign today! Words cannot express our thanks.
Abby and Jim
