Hello everyone I'm new to this site. Just trying to spread the word about
my goal before I die. I'm sure you've heard of people wanting to receive as many cards as possible before they die? Well I'd like to SEND caring cards to as many Cystic Fibrosis Fighters as I can. The caring cards are words of inspiration and meant to help CF fighters keep a positive attitude while fighting this disease. Provide support and encouragement. A card will be sent out once every month. I'd also like to eventually start sending out care packages to CF fighters who are in the hospital. I'd like to add that this isn't just for kids. This is for CF fighters of ANY age!
me: my name is Gloria and I'm 23 years old.. yes I was born with Cystic Fibrosis (double delta F508). I lost my older sister Guadalupe to CF on November 19th 2009. She was not only my sister but my best friend. I'm still here going strong and have to say my overall CF health is doing quite well! I want to share my positive attitude with everyone else while fighting this disease. Not only am I wanting to do this (send cards) to help other CF fighters but in memory of my sister. We always participated in CF fundraising events together. We even sang back up in a recording studio to the song "Who Comes First" years ago which was used for a Children's Hospital of WI promotion.
I know living with CF can be a pain sometimes with all the treatments and medications. But it's so important to stay on track with everything. I feel that these cards will help CF fighters stay focused and motivated to do so. It just feels awesome knowing someone (other than family and friends) truly care and it also helps having someone who knows what you're going through and understands. Because let's face it.. People without CF can say "I understand" but they have no clue.
Please help me spread the word out there! :) I would really appreciate it!
Feel free to email me if you or if you're a parent of a child with CF would like to be added to the mailing list to receive a caring card once a month. My email is : firstname.lastname@example.org
Also I have a page set up on Facebook you can find. It is called: Caring Cards for Cystic Fibrosis Fighters. Please help me spread the word out there about
this so I can reach out to many CFers. A simple card and encouraging message can make somebody's day and could possibly change somebody's outlook on life.
I also have a Twitter if you'd like to follow me: glorym90
