Some of you may know that my first grandaughter Ella was born with Cystic Fibrosis last May. This is a congenital disease with both a breathing and a digestive component. Poor baby was in having micro surgery done less than 72 hours after her birth to correct a bowel blockage! God bless modern medicine – she pulled through fine and with the exception of a couple of heart stopping events has been doing great ever since.
There is no cure for CF yet, although modern medicine is extremely close. To help raise money for research, our family will be walking in the GREAT STRIDES walk at the Grafton Lakes State Park walk on May 30th @ 9:00 am. If you would like to help “Team La La” (Ella’s nickname) raise fund, visit http://fightcf.cff.org/site/TR?px=1512993&pg=personal&fr_id=6872&et=hGEWLvR-aa2rOUD4p0_aFQ&s_tafId=91835 to pledge. (Donations do not show up immediately.)
Help make CF stand for Cure Found!
