Join us this Saturday, May 22nd, for our community garage sale from 9am-3pm!! Different houses throughout the neighborhood will be selling baked goodies for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!! I recently told them all that my son has Cystic Fibrosis and they are so nice to want to help us out:) We have the BEST neighborhood!!
What is Cystic Fibrosis??? Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and young adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections & obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and young adults with CF. Today their life expectancy is 37 years.
PS. I can't believe this is my 500th post!!! YEA!!!
