The James Gang Rides Again
Our Sweet Baby James was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 6 weeks of age. He will have to take pancreatic enzymes before every meal for the rest of his life to aid in digestion. He does breathing treatments twice per day to help break up the thick, sticky mucous that clogs his lungs. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is doing incredible work researching breakthrough treatments, and assists in getting affordable medications and treatments. The median life expectancy has gone from 37-46 years old just in his lifetime, and has increased substantially in the past 25 years. CF patients often did not live long enough to reach elementary school age. However, there is still so much work to be done.
Join our team The James Gang Rides Again and help add tomorrows!
This year we are happy to announce that there are 3 opportunities to join us! The James Gang is going "national" joining forces with San Antonio's Team Blackbird:
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
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.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Love, Kris, Lysa, and Baby James
