Meet my friend Ashley Quinones.  She was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was 2 years old.  A double-lung transplant saved her life, and a year ago she had a kidney transplant thanks to a live donor (talk about true friendship!).  I could go on and on about how amazing she is.  Clichés like “heart of gold” and “nerves of steel” and “fearless” and”selfless” all come to mind.  The good news – Ashley’s transplant went well, and at her 1 yr check-up there were no signs of rejection.

So, putting her health concerns aside & in typical Ashley fashion – she has decided to help out someone else.  One of Ashley’s friends has a son with CF.  She is raising money for the CF Foundation, and our team is named for him “Walking Toward a Future: 3 Miles in Gabe’s Shoes.”

So, because I love my friend – I, too, am raising money for the CF Foundation.  In April we will participant in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides walk.  From $5 to $50 – $0.90 of every dollar goes towards CF research.

Most of us aren’t brave (or selfless) enough to go under the knife and donate an organ to a friend.  However, we can all spare a few dollars.  Will you help?
