THE STORY:

My name is Sabrina Walker, I am 27 years old, I have Cystic Fibrosis and I am a cancer survivor. I went through four months of chemotheraphy and one month of radiation and I have now been in remission from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for almost 8 years!

I was also born with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system and causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs, digestive tract, and other areas of the body. 

To many people I seem like a normal person that goes about her daily life (which I try to do), but what people don't realize is that living with Cystic Fibrosis is a daily battle. My daily regimine consists of dozens of pills, nebulizer treatments and airway clearance treatments. On top of this I work a full time job, attend bootcamp twice a week and I run to clear my lungs of mucus that builds up and causes bacterial infections. 

I cherish the life that I am living and I want to do all that I can to stay healthy and to also someday see a cure for Cystic Fibrosis in my lifetime. Running is one of my main forms of airway clearance and I know that running is helping to prevent further lung damage. 

All the health struggles that I have endured in my life have made  me want to fight this battle and  thrive amongst all odds.  I will continue to fight this battle and raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. That is why this half marathon is so important to me, it is a half marathon that benefits CF. I am traveling from Anchorage, Alaska to Grosse Ile, Michigan to take part in this race! 

This Rock CF Rivers Half marathon will be my 8th half marathon! I truly enjoy the running adventures and journeys that I have been able to embark upon.  Running  keeps my lungs, mind and body healthy.  I have truly enjoyed all of my running journeys like Lost lake.  I will never take my ability to run for granted.

My next goal is to run in a marathon next year (2014) :)

Please support my efforts in trying to find a cure for CF. I pray that a cure will be found to help save the lives of those affected with Cystic Fibrosis.
