A Note to Our Visitors:

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website today. My hope is that by sharing some of this information with you, you will take away some knowledge, some awareness and some sense of inspiration to live each of your days to the fullest and never take for granted the gifts you have in your life today.

This site is dedicated to my daughter, Allison Grace, who has Cystic Fibrosis. You can read all about her story by clicking the link on the left hand side of the page. Her bravery and perseverance have taught me so much in the last seven years. I am a better person because of her.

I also dedicate this site to my older daughter, Kira Lorraine, who has weathered the storms of having a chronically ill sister with all the spunk she can muster. Her kindness and compassion will hopefully be carried with her throughout her life and on whatever journey she travels. I love you, girls!

Born of my love for my child and my determination to do anything I can to help with the cause, I hope this website gives you a starting point in understanding Cystic Fibrosis and what it means for our family.
