It's that time again.... Time for the annual Great Strides walk. Rachel has had a great year. She's been healthy with CF. Her good health takes a lot of work. She currently takes at least 13 pills a day, a minimum of an hour of chest therapy a day (to keep her lungs clear of mucus), uses an inhaler twice a day, 2 different breathing treatments daily (1 of them twice a day), and tons of hand washing. In addition to all her pills and treatments, Rachel stays active to keep herself healthy. She's in gymnastics twice a week, jogs & goes hiking with me, rides her bike, and enjoys participating in many active classes such as swim and Tahitian.
I ask for your help in making new therapies available and finding a cure. I want us to help the CF Foundation find a cure. With your support, it will happen. Right Now There Are 2 Promising Drugs In The Drug Pipeline!!!!!! I want Rachel to have the best quality of life possible and have many more fun life experiences (like she does with surfing).
If you can spare a few dollars, Rachel and everyone living with & fighting CF will be grateful. If you can't spare a few dollars I ask that you keep my sweet Rachel and the entire CF community in your prayers. I know that without Him, Rachel would not be who she is today.

ABOUT GREAT STRIDES
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fund-raising event. This year, I'm walking in the Great Strides walk at the 2013 Honolulu - Hawaii walk on 05/25/2013. Please help me meet my fund-raising goal of $5,000.00 by sponsoring me. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is really making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later.
