Good morning GTers!
This will mark our 7th year participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides event in Sacramento. Over the 7 years of fundraising, we have raised over $35,000 to help find a cure, fund new research for new medication and therapy programs.
We couldn't have done it without you! You have been a key component for our success over the years and out of all of the donations we receive, OO and GT are my favorites because we have never met face to face, and yet you care and are typically the most generous. I'm very grateful for all of our donations, but your donations have a special meaning to me just because our only connection is from a gaming forum. It means a great deal to me and I want every one to know that we are truly thankful for your support over the years (even if you haven't donated, but passed along on good thoughts)
Our walk this year is on May 21st, with our goal of $10,000. We're just over half way to our goal. We could really you your help!
Ethan is 6 years old and is doing very well. Doctors are impressed about how healthy he has been. We haven't had a hospital stay in over 4 years. He does have some liver damage that we have been treating (keeping his liver enzymes down). Other than that, no major issues. We continue to do nebulizers to help clear his lungs as well as his chest therapy where's hooked up to a machine that shakes his chest to help move the thick mucus out of his lungs. This is all preventative therapy.
He's just about ready to finish Kindergarten and it's amazing how much he has learned over the year. This year we have him signed up for soccer which should help his lungs.

Thanks again for all of your support over the years and into the future!
