This girl holds a bright light in all of our hearts. Not only because she is smart, beautiful, kind, and so very strong, but because she has carried a light into our family and brought so much joy, love and happiness into the lives of everyone she meets.
Sarah was born with an ugly, painful and exhausting genetic disorder called Cystic Fibrosis (CF), for which at this time, there is no cure.
CF (in short) affects several areas in the body and is a life-threatening illness. It causes the mucus in the body to become sticky rather than slippery like yours and mine. This mucus then gets stuck in places like the lungs and pancreas, which can make something that you and I take for granted every day (breathing and digestion) very difficult. Without the proper medication and treatment, their bodies would not absorb the nutrients they need from their food, and their lungs would fill up with fluid.
Cystic Fibrosis comes with its own slew of complications and everybody's body will react to it differently. It is not a matter of if these complications will develop, but when. Diabetes, along with liver damage are the most common of these complications. Sarah struggles with all of these at home and endures consistent visits to the hospital, which last a minimum of 14 days at a time.
Though Sarah applied for the Granted Wish Foundation (similar to the Make-a-Wish Foundation for kids) with a recommendation letter from her Doctor, her submission was denied.

She wants more than anything to take a trip to Disney World with her dear sweet Tyson, who also suffers from the disease, while she is able, and we would like to make that happen for her!
We would love to surprise her with the money she needs to get there! Your donation will do so much for her. Help us send her to the Happiest Place on Earth and give her a brief break from all of the treatments and struggles that this awful sickness brings them. Even the smallest donations will mean so much!
Thank you and please spread the word!
