| Driving Miss Desi to a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis |
By: Jamie R. |  Setting: Atlanta, GA  |  Date:  Saturday, May 20, 2017
Two years ago my daughter, Desi, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a life threatening genetic disease that causes her organs to fill will thick sticky mucous and progressively limit the ability to breathe. The other unfortunate aspect is that those with cystic fibrosis cannot be around each other because of infection control leaving it a very isolating disease.
Each year we passionately fundraise for more research and a cure. We then walk in our local Great strides walk with all our friends who have helped us along the way.
Our teams theme goes along with whatever Desi is interested in at the time. This last walk is as the Radio Flyer famous red wagon. Desi’s friends rode in them, supporting her, for the walk. It will forever be remembered as friends and family coming together all sharing the same goal- More Tomorrows, More Birthdays and Better Today’s for Desi.
Those Radio Flyer wagons will forever be a special memory in our mind.
