Make Cystic Fibrosis Missing – In – Action

Imagine breathing in and out of a straw over and over again. It seems silly at first, but after a few breaths the humor will leave as dizziness sets in and your body begs for deeper breaths and more oxygen. This is how an individual with Cystic Fibrosis will eventually feel every time they take a breath. When my daughter, Mia, was 7 months old she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. It was a day that I will never forget and one that changed my family forever. Mia is a creative, silly, smart and lovely little girl facing an uphill battle for her entire life. One that will probably be cut short because of this disease. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
