Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis is is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Currently, there are approximately 30,000 kids and adults in the US living with CF. One of those kids is Jack. He was born the same day as my son. I “met” Jack’s mom through BabyCenter.com while we were pregnant. I will get to meet their family this weekend at the Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis, in St. Louis. For the last month, I’ve donated 20% of all Sew Sassy sales to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The CFF is the world’s leader in the search for a cure. My husband’s cousin lost her life to CF in 2011. I am excited to report that as of today, I’ve raised over $200. That money will go towards research in finding a cure!
