GREAT STRIDES Walk for Cystic Fibrosis

Some of you may have been following Nathan, Tricia and Gwenyth's story over at Nathan is the husband of Tricia. Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis, a life-shortening disease that mainly affects the lungs, liver, pancreas and intestines. In the Summer of 2007, Tricia's lungs had become so badly diseased that she entered the hospital for a lung transplant, to find that she was pregnant. Nathan and Tricia decided to forego surgery until after the baby was born despite the poor odds of survival for mother or child. Gwenyth was born in January 2008, 3 months premature. Over the past 3 months, Gwenyth has grown from 1lb 6 oz to an amazing 3lbs 3 oz. On April 2, Tricia received her new lungs and is on the path to recovery. Nathan and Tricia's story has inspired thousands of people across the country, and their love for God and their faith in Him has been a testament of the strength He gives us to endure the most difficult times.

Nathan and Tricia organized the first GREAT STRIDES walk against CF on the Outer Banks in NC last year. This year, Nathan has set a personal goal of $10k for the GREAT STRIDES walk that is being held tomorrow at Duke University. He is just $1500 shy of his goal.

I am asking that if you can donate to help Nathan meet his goal, please do so today. Help Nathan and Tricia achieve another victory in the battle against CF!

Thanks for your support.

    It is so funny that you read that blog, CFHusband, too! I do as well and have been amazed by their story...some close friends of ours lost a sister to CF and my sister has the gene (fortunately her fiance does not or else my niece would have been in danger). So, it has definitely hit close to home here as well. Thanks for getting the word out!
