Any Help is GREATLY Appreciated

As some of you may know, I am doing something called Climb for a Cure. It is on November 18th in Milwaukee. I, along with 5 others, are climbing the US Bank Building. I believe it's 49 floors, 1,000 something steps. We are doing this to try to raise money for CF. As many of you know, donations are greatly appreciated now that we know the cure is only 2-5 years away! So, we are in need of any kind of donations, so they don't run out of money for research. Any amount is greatly appreciated. If you are able to help let me know. You can either email me or you can donate online at
It is greatly appreciated, or if you aren't doing anything on November 18th from 6-9 p.m. in Milwaukee feel free to come along and climb. Let me know then we can register you. Keep me posted! Thanks

Best Appointment EVER!!

Okay, so I had another regular check up at my Dr's today. Now, i've always had good PFT(pulmonary function tests). My lung function has usually been around 93%ish. Never lower than that. So today I had PFT's at the dr, and they were GREAT! now, i'm going to try to explain this right. so here it goes :)
Now out of 50 women my height (5'4) with NO cf they predicted that I should be blowing around a 101%. Not bad right. Well today I blew....97% AMAZING! I have never had PFT's that good. This is a very very good thing.
Now, i believe for percentile at 93% the percentile was 2.92 or 2.94. Well today at 97% I hit 3.04!
So basically to sum everything up, I'm the healthiest i've ever been!
I just had to share an update with everybody.
Not to much new news, other than we were told we should get our passports!! Shaweet. So I believe that on Friday this week we are going to get our passports(Me, my mom, and my one sister). My dad already has his passport for if he would want to go fishing in Canada.
Anyways. I will definetly update more when I know more. Have a good day!! =)
