Great Strides

Im not sure how many of you know Shannon Campbell but she has posted a blog about Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis. Laying in bed at 2:30 I couldnt get my mind off of her and all the trials she has gone through for this disease but I decided that I want to help and I also decided that all of you are going to help too. If you dont know Shannon please click on her link at the side of my page and read her blog. She is one amazing person and I am thankful that she and I were able to become even closer friends last year. She has had two seperate lung transplants and for her second one she was given a lobe by her husband and by her cousin. She is remarkable and I am determined to do my part. There will be a walk for Great Strides on April 12th and I plan on being there. I am also going to donate money to help find a cure. I hope all of you will realize how important this is and help in some small way. To learn more about Shannon and her sister Lindy who also has Cystic Fibrosis please click on the link and help in any way you can.


you can make a donation on Shannon and Lindy's page or on my page at the link below

My 13 year old neice has CF so I'm with ya! I really think people just can't contemplate how truly bad it is unless someone close to them has it.

Thank you Alison! You are so great to support and help with this effort. You don't know how much it means to me and my family.
