We All Win
I try to imagine a world where my son's friend Ella lives like every other little girl - without daily treatments, tons of pills, monthly doctor visits, and no more surgeries. Ella lives every day with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disorder that creates a thick, sticky mucus in her lungs and pancreas. Every day, Ella fights a battle with this mucus so that she can breathe, stay well, and grow. Every day, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation helps fund research into drug therapies that may one day cure Ella's CF. So that one day, Ella may breath easy and have the unlimited future every child deserves. Meet Ella: Count On Me video This is our third year walking in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Great Strides fund-raising walk, and our team needs your help to reach its goals. Thankfully, a whole host of amazing dyers and yarn companies have heard our call for help and donated incredible prizes so that in helping us reach our fund-raising goal, you may also win really great yarn!
