Great Strides Walk Banner

Normally I would ask if you would like to be on our Great Strides Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis team but given you are so far away, it is a difficult thing to ask. So, instead, I am asking that you help support our cause.

As you probably already know, my husband Greg was born with a terminal illness called Cystic Fibrosis. Today he is alive because of a miracle double lung transplant. Does that mean we are going to stop fighting to cure Cystic Fibrosis? Heck no! Why should we? Sure, Greg has new lungs but he still has the other complications caused by the disease. On top of that, Greg’s two younger cousins also have this disease and if we don’t find a cure soon, they will have no choice but to undergo a double lung transplant as well.

So, we need your help to raise funds to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Right now the median life expectancy is around 34 years old; way too young to die! Why not help us to help them find a cure and have the ability to live a long and healthy life?

Making a tax-deductible donation is easy and secure! Just click on the link below to make a donation to my fund-raising page where your donation will be credited to my team. It is a one time donation for me to walk 6.2k (10 miles) to support this cause. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!

Donating to GREAT STRIDES is such a simple and effective way for you to show your support for this important cause. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Once again, thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!

After her husband received a double-lung (bilateral) transplant in 2004, Shannon founded the Angel Cove Organ Donation Awareness Shop, which provides awareness t-shirts and gifts products for transplant recipients, living organ donors and donor families - giving 100% of the profits to help heart and lung transplant recipients with medical costs. Shannon lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her wonderful husband and two chocolate Labrador Retrievers.
