Hello, everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Momo. I have a very important thing to ask of all of you today. Please take the time to read and share this, it would mean everything to me. Thank you!
I live with a chronic, uncurable genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. It effects my lungs, sinuses, and digestive system. It makes life really hard sometimes. The current life expectancy is 35 years, but thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, that number is growing every year.
The thing about Cystic Fibrosis is that it’s classified as a rare disease. Not many people know about it, so it’s hard to get funding for new medical research. So, every year, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosts a Walk-a-Thon to help raise money so that people like me may one day have a cure for this horrible illness. This event is only of the ONLY events that generates donations for the foundation. If it wasn’t successful, we would have no new medicine, no new treatments, no hope.
That’s why I’m reaching out to all of you. I need your help to raise money for this amazing charity. Every single penny counts! Even if you can’t donate, which is perfectly understandable, please help me spread the word. It would mean the world to me and my family, and every other child, teenager, and adult who is a Cystic Fibrosis Survivor. (we aren’t sufferers. we are survivors)
