MICHIGAN PULMONARY DISEASE COMMUNITY
July 1, 2010
MPDCI has provided amazing services to our two children with cystic fibrois, who are now young adults. Summer after summer our family has been the beneficiaries of their generosity in providing tickets to places such as Michigan Adventure and Frankenmuth. For the past couple of summers, my youngest daughter Jamie has been able to attend cross country training camp. We are not a family of means, and thee activities are luxuries we most likely would have forgone otherwise. Casandra, our older daughter, has benefited semester after semester from the educational grant that MPDCI has provided for her. The people at MPDCI have such great hearts. Whenever we apply for a grant or scholarship, they communicate so professionally, and yet so compassionately. They have been patient when we have erred and they helped us to know what we needed to do in order to receive the grant/scholarship we were applying for. I guess, in a nutshell, it is obvious that they are passionate about assisting the CF community in as many ways as possible, and are delighted each time that they do just that. Because of distance, we do not actively engage in social activities they provide, and have participated in very little of their fundraising events. Yet, anyone I have ever talked to in that organization has treated me wonderfully. They are whole hearted, to be sure. It would be wonderful to see this organization recieve this grant, to encourage them for their great heart/efforts, and enable them to do even more. Children and young adults with CF often appear rather "normal" to most people, but to those of us who live with someone with CF, we know their daily challenges. But although we love them and seek to help them in everyway possible, we can never entirely understand what they go through. How grateful we are for an organization like MPDCI who heeps encouragement on these dear invididual.

I've personally experienced the results of MPDCI in enjoying many one-day holidays with my family that they have provided. My one daughter was able to attend cross country camp. My other daughter received financial aid for college.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the spirit and commitment of the volunteers.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
compassionate and caring.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide in even greater ways for the CF community, epecially in the area of medical expenses.
