My daughter loves to dance she has CF- She wanted to join a company 30+ miles away from home and try and study 30+ hours a week. It was expensive and you had to attend a summer camp and audition to be accepted. She was just 14 years old. She had been in the hospital and talked with her Dr.'s about whether or not she would be able to handle the schedule with school and her treatments etc. They encouraged her to try. They also told her about a nonprofit Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyles Foundation whose mission was to support kids with CF in their journey towards a longer and healthier life, specifically encouraging physical activity. She wrote a grant application and low and behold she was granted the money to attend camp. Armed with the support of CFLF and the encouragement of her Dr's she began dancing with the team. She became an interacle part of the group winning awards, performing for the community, fundraising events and the list goes on. When she was in her Sr. year of High School the group made it on the TV show America's Got Talent, the show is based on getting America's vote for the success of the team on the show. CFLF mobilized the CF community they voted, they sent my daughter notes of encouragement, admiration and hope. The team came in second but my daughter came in first, first in her heart, she was humbled, encouraged, motivated by the CF community to continue to make a difference for all those living either with CF or anything that might appear an obstacle- as she said on national television "don't let life’s obstacles get in your way." We say thank you to CFLF and the amazing love, money and support they share with the CF community and beyond!
