Cystic Fibrosis

Our grandson Mac has Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Once again Mac and his parents, Amy and Pete, and brother Owen are participating in the Great Strides Walk-a-thon for Cystic Fibrosis.

Mac wrote this letter himself:

Hi my name is Mac. I am eight years old and in second grade. My favorite sport is soccer. My favorite game is chess. I have Cystic Fibrosis. I call it CF. CF is a disease that produces a thick layer of mucus all inside your body. Some people with CF are in and out of the hospital all of the time. I want everyone to donate so kids with CF who are sick can live longer. Thank you for donating!!!! From, Mac
