Last winter I battled with bronchitis bordering on pneumonia for over a month that left me grabbing for air, unable to participate in cardio exercise, and with the overall feeling of being a lump. It was during this time that I thought about my late Grandma with COPD and asthma, my father who at the time was still smoking (way to quit Dad!!!), and my eight year old nephew Liam who has yet to let Cystic Fibrosis get in the way of break dancing. If I felt this out of breath for only a month I could not imagine how the aforementioned people felt...especially, Liam.
So this year I have committed to stretching my lung capacity and coughing up at least a few mucus balls myself, I am sure, to run a the Rock CF Half Marathon on Sunday March 24th in Grosse Ile, Michigan. With Rock CF, I strive to increase awareness, improve the quality of life, and increase research dollars for people (and break dancers) with Cystic Fibrosis.
Thank you for your donation and help in the dance to "Rock Cystic Fibrosis!"
With love and appreciation,
