Hello our dear sweet friends! This year we will be walking for both of our precious daughters, Ginger Blue (3 almost 4 years old) and Piper Love (7 weeks old). These babies are our whole lives. We would give anything to give them a happy healthy childhood. Every child should have the chance at happiness and not the fear and pain that comes with living with a chronic disease. No child should struggle to breath or gain weight. Ginger would rather spend her time dressing up, being a fairy, or playing mermaid in the bath tub. She loves to learn and has a gentle heart. She is kind to children of all ages and loves to make friends. She loves her new sister so very much. She is already showing Piper how to do enzymes and keeping each other company through breathing treatments. I thank God they have each other. What a special bond they'll have. When no else can fully understand their sister will. Even better then that though, one day our girls will celebrate a CURE together. This amazing foundation with God's blessing is working on medications that will add decades to their lives and hopefully one day soon replace all the hours of treatments and sickness with a pill a day to correct the whole defect. You're funding that dream. You're adding tomorrow's and hope to our lives. You're our only hope. With NO government funding your donations are the only way to keep pushing these medications through trials and into our reach. Please consider helping us this year. We know this dream is attainable. Last year a medication correcting the defect in 4% of people with CF came out (Kalydeco) sadly our girls are not one of the 4% fixed. They're next in line though!! Their medication is in trials right now! We thank you for supporting our family. You are our angels and our hope. I pray God blesses your lives for blessing ours. Thank you! All our love, Sarah, Derek, Ginger & Piper Sampson

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Advances continue to be made in the search for a cure, but your help is needed now, more than ever, to help keep up the momentum. Too many young lives depend on this vital research to let it go unfunded!
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event, with hundreds of walks taking place across the country each year to raise funds to support the search for a cure. This year, I'm walking in the Great Strides event at 2013 Redlands on 04/27/2013. Please help me meet my fundraising goal of $10,000.00 by sponsoring me. You'll feel confident knowing that your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively: Nearly 90 cents of every dollar of Foundation revenue goes to support vital CF research, medical and education programs. And, your gift is 100 percent tax-deductible.
