Great Strides Success!

It was another fabulous year for "This Team is Brought to You By the Letter E". We raised just under $6000. The entire event brought in $600,000!!!!! It is overwhelming to see the amount of support our friends and family give us with CF. The generosity and support make the tough days so much easier.

Elena continues to do VERY well. Her weight had gone done, but is slowly creeping back up. She is steady around 40 pounds. She has not fallen below 40 in several weeks, so this may be a permanent thing! Praise God!

She has been doing her vest treatments daily and reeping the benefits. She has defeated colds and sinus allergies better than her healthy family members. God rocks!
Elena has a quality of life today that was not even available for kids her age 20-30 years ago. Most children didn't live past Elena's age of five. The money you raised goes directly into funding research that searches for a cure for CF. We are so close to a cure, all the while Elena is provided with more time because of all the new found treatments.

Thank you everyone for being a part of our team and prolonging her very precious life.

The walkers, the team leaders, the donators, the prayers...ALL are Elena's heroes.
