Elena and her brother Ethan team up together to raise funds and awareness about CF!
My name is Elena. I am the oldest of four. My brother Ethan and I are running a super cool race this year on March 9th at 1pm in Lithia Springs with our Mom and Dad that will promote good health (cause that is really important for everyone, but especially kids with Cystic Fibrosis like me).
I was diagnosed with CF at birth. It was a rough and scary start for me! I was in and out of the hospital with lots of surgeries to try and fix my intestines that were really messed up because of problems that CF was causing. I was brand new to the world and CF was already messing up my body. What is up with that?
Since then, I have grown tall and strong! It is because of the advances in new medicines that I am doing well (and a another BIG reason is because I actually take all my medicines when I supposed to...even when I don't really want to.
There is still no cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Research is getting there though!
I hope you will consider donating towards our cause! If you can't donate, then consider joining our team and running with us or volunteer. I promise that you will walk away from the day with a smile on your face:)
