A childhood friend of mine now works for a NC television station that holds an annual telethon for Cystic Fibrosis every summer (read more about that Here). Pat met up with us a few weeks ago to film a short clip that was shown during the telethon (see below). I thought you might like to watch it...you might also like to know that the telethon raised nearly half a million dollars for CF research!!!
On a related note, a young CF girl named Jaimee passed away yesterday just a few days after receiving her long-awaited double lung transplant. Jaimee is the cousin of a dear friend of mine...she leaves behind a husband and an awesome extended family who could really use your prayer today.
With another death in the CF community, I'm reminded more than ever that there is still no cure, but that we are getting closer every day to finding that cure and making a HUGE difference in the lives of thousands of CFers around the world.
