Now, there is all of this news about the research that is going on, and against my wishes, my hope has sky rocketed. They are saying that they know what my faulty gene does, and they have an idea how to make it work properly. What does that really mean? I don't know. It gives me a lot of hope that maybe I will get to see a cure. It's difficult, because I am excited about what the future holds for those of us with this disease, but then again, I don't want to be let down! And before I got into blogging and CysticLife, I wasn't exposed to all of the new information as much. Now, I see it everyday, and I can't help but jump for joy anytime good news and my genotype are mentioned in the same sentence. I guess you could say that I have some major mixed feelings on the whole thing. I'm just praying that I will get the privilege to experience what it is like to have a cure.
On the same line of thinking, it makes me want to go crazy raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I made my goal for fundraising $1000. I have raised $785, and I would greatly appreciate it if you made a donation no matter how small! Help me meet my goal! :) Help researchers find a cure or even more treatments! If you would like to donate, just click here. Thank you so much! If you are not in a position to make a donation, prayers are welcome as well! We definitely need them. You can also help just by passing on my story and the link to my donation page. Any help whatsoever is helpful.
