About Lil Chris

This is my nephew who we affectionately call Lil' Chris.

Adorable, isn't he? We all just love him so much...

Which leads me to the purpose of this blog...

Lil Chris was born with a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. In short, CF is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). I will expand more on this later. For more information now, click on the link above.

My goals with this blog are (1) to raise awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and the importance of organ donation and (2) to ask for your prayers for Lil Chris and the scientists who are searching for a cure. Such amazing strides (you'll see this mentioned again later) have been made in the research & treatment of CF just in the past 10 years that I firmly believe, through the hand of Almighty God, a cure is possible in Lil Chris' lifetime.

Thanks for taking the time to visit this blog. I look forward to sharing this story with you in the coming weeks.
