Support Great Strides Honolulu May 28, 2016

Support Me and My Team Mucous Mob in Fight for the Cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

As most of you know, I'm an experienced pediatric dietitian in Honolulu, HI.

One of few states with very low incidence of Cystic Fibrosis as we have a population of predominately Asian background. However, I practice in a world class medical facility that also houses the State's only Cystic Fibrosis Center.

As any excellent CF Center would do, we have a Family Education Day each year. This year's Family Education would be held on 27 May, 2016 at the Hale Koa Hotel in Waikiki in Honolulu. The Family Education Day would be followed by the Annual Great Stride Walk at Kapiolani Park on the May 28, 2016.

The Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Our patients will have their own team of supporters. And the providers in our facility is creating our own team, the Mucous Mob.

Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. Being part of the CF team, I see the progress and lives we change everyday. Without these life-saving treatment and measures, our patients would not have achieve what they have today.

By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.

Please join me to increase awareness and research for cure of this life-threatening disease. On behalf of all our patients with Cystic Fibrosis and our team, I thank you for your support.
