Hello to all of our supporters and followers,
It's almost walk time, so it's time to raise some money. No amount is too small and even a $1.00 goes far! Please continue to share this cause to everyone you know. Knowledge is power, and together we can find a cure for cystic fibrosis!
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event. This year, I'm walking in the Great Strides walk at Seville Square Pensacola Florida on May 25, 2013. Please help me meet my fundraising goal of $1500.00 by sponsoring me. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education. My son, Taylor, was diagnosed November 2006 with cystic fibrosis at the age of 3; it was a very bitter sweet day. In my heart I knew I had a very sick little boy I just did not know how sick he really was. Receiving an actual diagnosis for Taylor was relieving now I knew why he was so sick and we could finally start treating him for his true illness. Those of you close to our family know how sick Taylor was prior to his diagnosis and now see he is a completely different child. He has life in his eyes and a smile that will melt your heart. I believe God puts people in our lives for reason. I believe Taylor has been given to us to educate us, and teach us how to appreciate life. There is no current cure for cystic fibrosis but one day I know there will be. This is why I am asking you to help Team Taylor to raise our goal for research and awareness. This will be Team Taylors 6th year to participate in the Great Strides walk. This year our goal is to come in 1st place! We greatly appreciate all donations and would love for all of you to join us on our walk!

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. 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.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation and Great Strides!
