Being honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is very special to my heart. I remember the day that my best friend Alexia called me to let me know that her son James was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I didn’t understand what CF was. I couldn’t believe my nephew was diagnosed with CF. As I received more information about CF, I got so nervous and worried that I couldn’t even call or see Alexia for about 2 weeks. I was in shock. After crying by myself for two weeks, I was ready to see her and the baby. I went to her house with a smile thinking I had to be strong for my best friend and her family. She explained more and more details about CF to me. She told me about this non-profit organization and the amazing job that they do looking for the cure. I love Alexia not only because she is an extraordinary mom, but because she is extremely genuine, strong and humble. Alexia and her husband spend a lot of time doing everything they can trying to make their son’s life better. The day I found out about this non-profit organization, I knew I needed to get involved and support my best friend any way I could. The first year of James’s diagnosis, I was able to collect almost $2,000 at a work fundraiser I put together. Each year I try my best to make James’s life longer and healthier. He is almost 3 years old and he makes me feel like the most important person in the whole world when he calls me Titi Yuri that means “Aunty” and he tells me “I love you”. He is the sweetest and happiest child I have ever met. Every night, I think and pray about James being healthy and free of CF. I know that every dollar that you contribute to this cause is going to give him more days, more weeks, more months and more years.

Gracias, gracias, gracias for your consideration! Each dollar will mean another day that James gets to spend with the ones who love him.
