Imagine exchanging gifts and seeing the light in your son's eyes when he opens his first big wheel. Then, worrying that he won't live to be old enough to outgrow it.
That's what those with Cystic Fibrosis have to deal with. Back in the 1950s, few children were able to live to see elementary school. While some mothers were tying bows in their little girls hair and crying when they saw them off to school, others were crying because their child never lived long enough to see school.
I'll have more on this hereditary disease in the coming days. I want to take action to find a cure. So when people ask me what I want as a gift this holiday season, I say to simply donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
If you'd like to take action and donate, the following is the link:http://www.cff.org/LWC/dsp_donationPage.cfm?idEvent=14879&idUser=423883
