Our son Beckett just celebrated his 6th birthday on March 13th and it is hard to believe that we have walked and raised money for cystic fibrosis for 7 years at the Portland, Great Strides walk. We found out Beckett had cystic fibrosis in a genetic test less than a week before he was born, since that day we have learned a lot about advances in cystic fibrosis and have become increasingly hopeful for Beckett’s future. We have so much hope in the new drugs currently in trial and we know our fundraising has a direct impact on Beckett’s future.
Beckett is an energetic and kind boy. He is in Kindegarten this year! Beckett loves legos, reading, playing T ball and trampolining with his friends. He is a normal little boy who doesn’t realize any of his daily activities are out of the norm, but Beckett spends up to 2 hours a day in his vest, his nebulizer and takes many vitamins, prescriptions and enzymes to stay healthy each day.
This is another exciting year because Corwin Automotive has committed to matching Beckett’s Team up to $25,000.00! That means each dollar you donate is actually two dollars. Please donate to Beckett’s Team and your donation will be matched by our sponsor!
Thanks for your generosity!
