*KEEP CALM & JUST BREATHE*

Hi Everyone! This page is dedicated to a family member, Theron Branch and his every day fight with Cystic Fibrosis. Think back at what your life was like at age 21. You probably have memories of great times and experiences that you will never forget, right?! Unfortunately, Theron fights for every breath he takes. In the event that you're not exactly familiar with what Cystic Fibrosis is, here is a description of this terrible disease:

"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; and
  • obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food."
     - Referenced from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,  
    www.cff.org

    Our goal is to raise funds and awareness on Theron's behalf in hopes that he will become a recipient of new lungs in the very near future!! As we all know, these things are costly, and though we are all struggling to a degree, imagine what its like to be strapped to an oxygen tank with a constant reminder of not being able to breath on your own. This is something I would imagine that otherwise healthy people don't even think about!

    Theron has so much life to live and LOVE to give! He's truly an inspiration to many with his amazing outlook on life and concern for others.

    Thank you for your support and helping to spread the word!
