Please help me advocate for salt water therapy for Cystic Fibrosis.
I was diagnosed with CF at 9 months and given a life expectancy of 12 years, yet I celebrated 40 in 2017! My health has greatly improved in the last 5 years and I owe it to the salt therapy provided by the ocean. I wish to be an advocate and proof that life is better by the ocean for those living with Cystic fibrosis "a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time." CFF.org.
It is a dream of mine to participate in the Mauli Ola Foundation Surf Experience Day event that harnesses "the healing powers of the ocean" and exposes those with Cystic Fibrosis to surfing. I want to show other CF patients and their families that just because we have challenges, we can still enjoy life and have fun while taking care of ourselves.
The event takes place on Oahu December 2, 2017. I need to raise funds to pay for my expenses as well as raise awareness and hopefully find some people who want to participate. Any money raised beyond my expenses will be donated back to the Cystic Fibrosis Community.
Give thanks and Mahalo
