Great Strides Support

It has been a heartfelt month here in my Cubie Corner. April showered us with wonderful diamonds. April has now opened up an even greater opportunity to make a difference in the life of many.

Here is how I got involved?

At noon on friday April 16th, 2010 we will be introducing a special greeting card in honor of Dante. (Available at http://www.cisnexpressions.etsy.com/.) His grandmother Gina Ferrazano has been a very caring and nurturing grandmother in the fight to save his life. You see Dante is a bright eyed handsome 10 year old young man that struggles with Cystic Fibrosis. His grandmother Gina Ferrazano has been nothing but a remarkable support and on May 8th she will be walking in the GREAT STRIDES walk at the Williams Roger park NY allong with many more wonderful people coming together to raise awareness and much needed funds to help children like her grandson Dante to have a fighting chance. In an effort to raise funds to support the Ferrazzano family we will be donating our sale proceeds on all greeting card sales purchased beginning April 16th thru May 6th, 2010. Help to sponsor Gina to meet her goal. I ask that you look into your hearts and reach out for a wothy cause.
If you would like to make a direct donation and help sponsor Gina Ferrazzano please by all means do so by visiting www.cff.org/great_strides/dsp_donationpage.cfm?iduser=83493&walkid=6332

Supporting the Cystic Fibrosis foundation, a breath of life means another day to move forward. Please help support their every breath as they continue to move forward in all their efforts.

Here is your personal invitation directly from the Ferrazzano Family.

Hello dear friend,

We extend to you a special invitation to help support Gina Ferrazzano For GREAT STRIDES.

GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fund-raising event. This year, I'm walking in the GREAT STRIDES walk at the Roger Williams Park on May 08,2010. The reason why I started walking is because my grandson Dante has C.F. When he first started showing signs of this desease, he was only a couple of months old, at first doctor's thought he had asthma. After repeated hopitilized episodes, his mom and dad decided to have him checked out further by Specialists at the Children's Hospital in Mass. It is there that we found out the cause of dante's problems. He was just four years old. Dante will be eleven yrs. old in May. He is a bright, and energetic young man. Although his daily treatments consist of taking enzymes before each meal, taking and acid reflux preventive medicine twice daily, and wearing a vibrating vest for 30 minutes per day that helps to keep the mucus from sticking to his lungs, which helps him to breath easier, he also under goes procedures which require hospital stays, these procedures are performed surgically to remove excess mucus from his lungs, an pallops from his sinus cavity. With all of this in his life, Dante is a very well rounded, and happy young man. We would like to keep it that way. Dante's parents, and all the people that love him, want to see him grow up to be a fine young man with a great future. Please help me meet my fund-raising goal of $2000.00 by sponsoring me. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation and GREAT STRIDES!

Thank you and may God bless you,

Gina Ferrazzano
