Badgers are bringing on the brew!
Even world leaders are toasting Kylie's Birthday!
Joshua is 20 months old, and he was diagnosed with CF when he was ten days old. This was the most devastating news new parents could have ever received. His parents thought that Joshua was perfectly healthy. He looked fine, and they thought it was impossible that he could be sick. That's the thing about CF. On the outside these guys look great, but on the inside things are terribly wrong. Joshua has to take several medications and do several difficult breathing treatments every day just to keep his lungs healthy. He cannot absorb fat from his food, therefore, he must take medicine every time he eats just to gain weight. His parents believe that God has helped Joshua stay healthy this far. He has not had any respiratory infections that required hospitalization, and he is in the 90th percentile for both height and weight. They have learned to live with this disease and make the best of their lives with it, but they and thousands like them, would love to see a cure in Joshua's lifetime. Please help us make CF stand for Cure Found instead of Cystic Fibrosis. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
On Saturday May 2, 2009 Joshua's mother is going to participate in a walk, called Great Strides. It is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fund-raising event. You can help Joshua and thousands of children just like him by donating to this great cause.
Joshua is a beautiful baby. I have held this little guy in my arms and loved and kissed on him many times. I love this child and his parents as if they were my own family. If you would like to make a donation to help Joshua and his parents, please click on this link and follow the directions to a brighter future for Joshua and countless others. http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/ElisabethPhilbrick6031
