19 Years of Beating Cystic Fibrosis! Help Jenny Stay Strong!

Photo above: Jenny (age 6) with her dog Sam. And Jenny today with her dog Westley a.k.a. “Crusty Dog”.

Many of you are aware that my daughter Jennifer was born with Cystic Fibrosis, and has been fighting this disease successfully since 1998. This year, her older sister Nicole is running the Boston Marathon in order to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on behalf of Jenny. If you would like to donate ANY amount, you can click on this link to donate, and leave a note for Jenny.
