GearUp4CF.org

Our CF/TX friend, Eva (65redroses.livejournal.com) is helping her dad raise money for CF in a really cool way.

Bill Markvoort is joining GearUp4CF to raise money for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by riding across BC, Canada. The 10 day ride begins in just a few days, so don't miss out on this opportunity to support CF research.

Eva put together the video below to help her dad raise as much money as possible to help find a cure for CF. Check it out, and please, consider Clicking Here and sponsoring Bill by donating the the CCFF today!

Thanks!

That was too close to home for me.
First I read Haley's mom's update, then watched this video.

It makes you realize a whole lot of things.

Wow, she is a star! As is Trisha. You guys have to fight so hard to live... thank you for sharing the video. It helps put into perspective what life with CF is like. I can't imagine.
My dd has a lot of special needs and sometimes she has respiratory issues related to her prematurity. Every time she is intubated my heart sinks a little deeper.
I feel for the parents too... and for you Nate. As difficult as it is to suffer yourself, watching someone you love suffer is sometimes unbearable!
Praying for you guys!
