My Team CF Story

  • Joseph ‚'oeJoey‚' Coakley, 1960-1975 ‚'" Joey Coakley is remembered as a witty, fun-loving young man who brought sunshine with him as he entered any room. His good disposition and sense of humor is a memory shared by both family and friends. Joey, diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at birth, dealt with the trials of this disease on a daily basis with quiet strength and courage. Joey was never one to complain or feel sorry for himself, rather the prevailing memory of Joey was his ability to find humor in any situation. Tragically, Joey lost his battle against CF in 1975 after a short 15 years on this earth.
  • Chicago Marathon 2015

There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis -- a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. My amazing grandparents lost three of their young children to CF. I will be running in honor of my mother’s brother and sister, as well as all those who have tragically lost their battle with CF, and to support all those who are living with CF today.  

Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease, but together, we can help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me?
