Caitlin's Crew is once again back to work at taking on the fight to find a cure!
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF.
Our daughter, Caitlin, graduated from Towson University and is busy starting the next chapter in her life as a young career minded adult and her relative health is a tribute to each and every one of you who have given to this cause in the past. Our dream is that one day she will no longer have to spend over an hour a day doing the treatments that give her breath and extra days. The drugs and therapeutic advances that have been achieved since her birth are extraordinary, if not miraculous, but we want to find the cure!! We want CF to stand for CURE FOUND!
This year, the Breslin Family is walking in our local Great Strides walk on May 14th in Hagerstown and need your help to meet our fundraising goal. In addition, I am excited to tell you that we are a National team with friends and family walking in Great Strides events in Annapolis, MD, Philadelphia, PA, New Orleans, LA, Durham, NC and in Alexandria, Virginia. If you can make the time, we would love to have you join us at any of these locations.
If you can't join us for the walk, your generous gift will be used to help support the Foundation’s mission of finding a cure and improving the lives of those with CF. And, your gift is 100 percent tax deductible.

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
