The youngest of our three daughters was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) two weeks after her birth. We had heard of CF before, thought it had something to do with the lungs but had never known anyone with it.


Deirdre takes enzymes with each meal and averages ~ 130 pills, including vitamins, each week. She also does daily nebulizing treatments along with chest physiotherapy to dislodge mucus from her lungs in order to prevent infections.

She, and the other 30,000 people in the US with CF, need hope for more tomorrow's - don't YOU think so?

Could it be another year already?
This year's Great Strides walk will be 5/18/14 in Dedham, MA.

Here's the 2013 letter we sent to hundreds of folks!
