The McCormick family has hosted this fun event for the past 14 years. Dylan and Sierra McCormick both have Cystic Fibrosis. Although this is not a fundraiser directly for them, they are our local heroes and inspiration for the party. And they need our love & support.
The McCormick kids have been through some very hard times, not only with this disease, but they lost their mother a few years ago, and recently their grandfather who played a daily role in their lives. As we gather together to encourage and support the McCormick family, we also raise money to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Complete CF information is at the foundation’s website: www.cff.org
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
• clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections;
• obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today,advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life or children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
