Cystic Fibrosis walk for Laura Simmons will be in Wilson, NY
Fund raiser in Wilson for Cystic Fibrosis
This past walk in Wilson NY was a huge success! We all took strides to find a cure and change the lives of children with CF! You gave Laura more tomorrows! How can a parent thank you for that? May God bless you and your family!
We want you all to know that Laura is now Sweet 16!! What a mile stone for a child with CF! This is a kid that wasn't going live past 5- years- old!
Laura will be walking for a cure again this year. Laura as many of you know has Cystic Fibrosis and until there is a cure, she will most likely die from this. Laura was not expected to live, but due to our strong faith and an excellent team right here in Buffalo she is still with us touching the lives of everyone she meets.
Laura gives so much of herself (over 1,100 community hours) how about if we give back to her? This year's walk is extra special for her! While in the hospital Laura saw how CF changes lives and she wants to be a positive part of that life change!
This Picture that you see is from Laura's Winter dance. As you can see that all of the Cf research is doing Laura well!
Laura and many other kids like her have CF and are breaking new ground for themselves. They are no longer taking the word "no" for an answer. They simply reply; "Yes I can, just watch me!" Let's help her and others like her out by donating towards their walk, and then together we can "Just watch them grow!"
Thank you so much for giving her the chance! Any amount can help, even a dollar. Even your time , or make a new team, or donate something for our auction!

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation and GREAT STRIDES! LET'S MAKE CF stand for CURE FOUND!
