Great Strides

With everything that we've had going on this past year, I've been off my fundraising game. 

It's time for me to ask you to donate to help find a cure for this awful disease.  We have been fortunate that Olivia has had a healthy year - it has been 14 months since she was hospitalized (knock on do it again just to be safe).  Please give what you can so the medications can be found to save her life.  We know the drugs are out there and they aren't far off from being found or released, but without donations the money isn't there to continue with the research.  Cystic Fibrosis is considered an "orphan illness" and, therefore, receives no government funding (read about the Orphan Drug Act).  It's up to us (all of us) to help out in any way we can.

She's worth it.

Some more fun at the park

Olivia and I spend a lot of time at the beach and park - more time at the park lately.  Whenever I tell her that we're going to the park, she ALWAYS wants to wear a dress.  I keep telling her that she could play easier in shorts, but what do I know?


 We spotted a caterpillar.  If you can't see it, it's by her right hand about to climb the black post.
 He looked famished.  
 He didn't show interest in the food Olivia offered him so she gave it to him to go.


This picture is from March 15th.  I just saw in it my folder and thought it was cute.
