WELCOME TO ZOE'S Great Strides PAGE!!!!!
First of all, THANK YOU! Thank you if you are returning to Zoe's page from last year, thank you if you are brand new! THANK YOU!!
Please share her page with everyone you know!! Let's raise some huge amounts of money for research this year!!!!! Go Team Zoe!!!!! You're the BEST!!!!!!!
Update on our little Zoe since the walk last April..... She was admitted again in July 2012, then again January 2013 due to CF lung complications. She received 3 weeks of IVs both times. Her port a catheter has been a blessing in disguise! Her anxiety for admissions has dropped significantly. She had some scarier times this past year with lower pulmonary lung function results. It is taking longer amounts of IV therapy to get her back to her baseline. Bottom line is...we need a CURE!!
Poor baby just can't catch a breath....literally...... We will continue with her treatments and therapies without fail....she has never missed a single one. We will continue to FIGHT this horrible, devastating disease that is trying to damage the insides of our little girl.
The past couple of years she has started to realize the fact that she has CF. That she is different. She said to me one day..."Mom, you know what I wish?" To which I replied, "What, baby?" She said, " I wish I didn't have CF so I wouldn't have to do all these treatments, I could play instead." HEARTBREAKING for me. It is a sad time when they realize that everyone else doesn't spend 2-3 hours a day doing breathing treatments and chest physical therapy. Or that they don't take 25 pills a day just to digest their food.....PLEASE help us find a CURE for this devastating disease. Every single dollar counts!!!
There are many drugs in the CFF drug pipeline that are very promising! This is an exciting time to become involved with the CFF! New drugs and research are very expensive. We need your help!!!

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.
