Dean continues to take enzymes with every snack and meal (about 20 a day)! He has racked up over 570 hours on his vest machine and this does not include the multiple nebulized treatments each morning and evening. We travel with his treatments wherever we go, making his meds a priority in life and continue to fundraise so that one day he can breathe easily and carefree. With your help, over the past four years, team Eat. Pray. Dean has raised over $140,000 through various walks, runs, cycles and Climbs.
We can write forever but we will let you watch the Annual Cystic Fibrosis Foundation video that Dean was blessed to be in:
Please pray for a cure, for the scientists working so diligently on the developing science and research, for Dean and other CFers and their daily fight and for all of the events we try to share and participate in to raise awareness. The three ways you can help:
