EVENT: 2017 Amica Newport Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
Kristen (Larochelle) Rousseau was born 28 years ago with the life threatening disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Over time, the lungs weaken from years of fighting infections, leaving patients with minimal lung capacity and transplant as the only option. Kristen is currently waiting for a double lung transplant. This campaign is to assist in relieving some of the financial burden associated with a transplant, as the out-pocket-expenses can add up quickly. Your contribution will go towards: medical expenses not covered by insurance, temporary housing and meals, travel expenses for back and forth trips to Boston, as well as assisting in expenses back home as her husband, James will be taking a leave of absence from work.
