In the Spotlight

GSCA2014
Great Strides Child Ambassador, 2014
Jaxon Kail Kretchmar was born April 17, 2010. The day after Jaxon was born he underwent major abdominal surgery. This surgery led to the discovery of meconeum ileus and soon resulted in the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis. From the get go Jaxon proved he has what it takes to be a CF warrior and will proudly show off his "super hero" scars for proof. Jaxon takes pride in helping others and finds ways to be the leader or hero. Always up for an adventure, Jaxon studies Tae Kwon Do and hopes to someday become a ninja turtle. Jaxon is blessed with an amazing network of family and friends that offer endless love, support and encouragement. At the top of that list is Tristen, his big brother, whom Jaxon absolutely adores. Tristen offers special love, protection, and motivation that is instrumental to Jaxon and his attitude towards maintaining his health and ability to fight the disease. Managing CF has become a lifestyle for Jaxon, and though the treatments can be difficult, Jaxon proves to be a very tough CF fighter all while maintaining a sweet, loving, and gentle spirit. We are very encouraged with the significant progress CF researchers are making, and we find hope in the possibility of cure. We know that this can't be accomplished without the funds that research requires. With so many advanced treatments and "miracle" drugs on the horizon, now is the time to support CF research. Your contributions truly make a difference to Jaxon and to all those living with CF. Jaxon is very excited to be this year's Child Ambassador and hopes to see YOU at the walk.Please join Jaxon in raising money to find a CURE for all those with cystic fibrosis!

Great Strides Ambassador, 2014
My name is Wes Hawkins. I am a 20 year old studying Hotel & Restaurant Administration at Oklahoma State University and I have cystic fibrosis (CF). I was diagnosed with CF at the age of 3, before it was required that all newborns be tested for CF. For many years I lived a relatively normal life; playing sports, doing gymnastics, and anything else I could get into. At age 15, however, the symptoms of CF started to have impact me. CF had always been something I managed, a lifestyle of sorts. But it has shifted to the reality of recurring infections, hospital stays, and much more. This new "normal" woke me up to the ways in which I can help to better my future.

I partner with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to raise awareness and funds for CF research. I find purpose in helping others understand what it's like to battle this disease and how their contributions can truly make a difference in the CF community. When I raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation I am investing in my future and in the future of all those who fight CF. I sincerely believe that one day soon we will be able to say that CF stands for CURE FOUND!
