THE STORY:

Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with waterskiing and boats. I probably ask my husband to buy me a boat at least 5 times a day, all in jest of course.  :)

What does this have to do with a fundraiser to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis?  Well, most of you know that I have Cystic Fibrosis as well as Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (or as I like to call it "buy one disease get the second free").  Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that creates thick, sticky mucus in my lungs, my pancreas, and many other parts of my body.  That mucus can then get infected, causing serious and sometimes even deadly complications.  Those lung infections over time can shorten the life span of people with Cystic Fibrosis.  Medical breakthroughs, however, have been increasing our life spans.  When I was diagnosed at age 8, my parents were told I might live to see 20.  The average life expectancy is now 37, and I am 43!  Wahoo.  It’s getting better, but still not cured.

The money that I am raising will go towards new medications and new research to find a cure, a cure so that parents of a baby born today won't be told that their child will not live to see adulthood.

Why am I raising money?  Because I want to live to be 110 like I promised my husband, I want to see my kids grow up, go to college, get married, and I want to continue to ask my husband to buy me a MasterCraft 5 times a day for the next 67 years.  Sooner or later he has got to cave.  And I have a lot more waterskiing left to do.

So please help me raise money and fight this nasty disease with everything I have, one buoy at a time!
