Reilly’s Fight

September 10, 2008

I wanted to share a newspaper article about a friend and her daughter.  Reilly was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was 19 months old.  She is such a sweet, pretty little girl who takes having this illness with a grace and patience that I wouldn’t expect to see in most adults and she’s only 5 years old.  This weekend there will be a walk in Elizabeth City to help raise money for research in the hopes that new medical advances will extend the median life expectancy from the current age – 37 years old.  Here is the article.

If you wish to donate, please let me know and I will put you in contact with Cindy.  Reilly deserves to live to a ripe old age….

    I have a distant cousin who has CF and he’s well into his thirties (defying all the odds they laid out for him as a kid) Anything is possible. Thanks for letting me know about this.
