Blow Away Cystic Fibrosis

6:46:00 AM

Good Morning Friends! 
No craft today, just a personal note...
On May 15th my family is walking in the 
Great Strides Walk
to raise money to find a cure for
My youngest daughter
Kenley 
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, 
sticky mucus that 
*clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
*Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
In the 1950's, few children with Cystic Fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30's, 40's and beyond.

We all know that that is not enough!
Please help us find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis by
donating to your local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Thank you all so much for following me as I walk for Kenley!

  2. Yes, blow away CF for Kenley and the other kids and families affected by this disease! I have a dear friend whose son Dillan is living with CF too. In fact she plans a big gala here in MN to benefit CF each fall. I had the joy of helping out with the silent auction one year...it was amazing!
    I pray for Dillan often and will add Kenley to my prayers too...
    Blessings, Laurel
