I am so excited to share this news. Congress has passes Legislation that will require the state of Texas to start screening all newborns for CF. For those of you reading that dont know what CF stand's for.... ( aka Cystic Fibrosis). That is a huge accomplishment. Now all 50 states will require the screening. While this is a big step for CF, we still need more. Due to the economy this past year, our goal for the Great Strides Walk was short of our expected goal. So money is still needed to help get those treatments and cures found to increase the hopes for a better life for our CF children. Please stop by and make a donation no matter how small it is. Even a dollar can make a difference if everyone donated a $1.00
Just think each day we spend $4.00 on a cup of coffee at starbucks, or $9.00 for lunch out, $50.00 on a carton on cigarets. If we would stop and take the time to remember that this small sacrifice could help find a cure and give these children the hope for life wouldn't it be worth it.
