This Tuesday, March 9th we are doing a fundraiser at the Tumbleweed Restaurant in Wooster to help raise money for a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis. All you need to do is click the link below, print the coupon, and then bring the coupon in to the Wooster Tumbleweed any time on Tuesday March 9th, and then 10% of your bill will go towards a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis.

For those who are new to my blog, Cystic Fibrosis(CF) is a life threatening, genetic disease of the lungs and digestive system. You can go to www.cff.org for more info. My 2 1/2 year old son, Lil' Chris, has CF and his life expectancy is only 37. Take a look at your child and imagine if he or she only had about 30-40 years to live or less. Would that be enough for you?? Of course not. That is why I do these fundraisers, because CF is not funded by the government like other diseases. It's up to the parents, family, and friends of those effected by CF to raise the MUCH needed money to fund VITAL research for better meds, and hopefully one day.....a CURE!!!!! We keep getting closer and closer to a cure, but it costs LOTS of money to develop these new drugs and test them before they can be approved by the FDA and then released.

Please help spread the word about Tumbleweed and all my fundraisers to help raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and Organ Donation. In the final days of those with CF, a double lung transplant can add 5-10 more years onto their lives, but this can't happen unless a donor is found. It's very important that everyone become a donor. All you have to do is get it marked on your driver's license and then you can save up to 7 peoples lives. So many young people die from CF just waiting and waiting and waiting for a matching donor. Please become an organ donor today and spread the word as to how important it is.

My next few fundraisers after Tumbleweed, are at CiCi's Pizza in Wooster on March 25th, April 22nd, and May 27th from 4pm-8pm. Come and join us and just put your receipt in the jar by the register and then 10% of your bill will go towards a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis. I will be at each one and we will be having a raffle each time too. Spread the word!!

We are also having a walk for Cystic Fibrosis on Saturday, May 1st at 9am if you would like to join us that would be GREAT!! It will be held at Hewitt Cowels Pavilion of Ida Sue School(by the soccer fields). The address is 266 Oldman Rd. in Wooster. Come join us for a day of fun, free food, and lots of prizes!!!

Thank you everyone for checking out my blog, and feel free to check back often to see more fundraisers for Cystic Fibrosis in town and to get updates on Lil' Chris:)
