Dear to my heart...Breathe 4 Tomorrow brings awareness to Cystic Fibrosis...

By
Real Estate Agent with VanDorm Realty

BREATHE 4 TOMORROW FOUNDATION was founded to "make life easier one breathe at a time." It was created by my dear friend Sarah Morris & my stepson Aaron Greene. Together with the support of other great people we plan to assist with the financial struggles families face when dealing with Cystic Fibrosis. We can't put a price tag on it, nor can we begin to describe the stresses that go along with this life threatening disease. Unfortunately, with many assistance programs there is this "gap". The "gap" consists of the people who make too much to be eligible for assistance, but not enough to make it, and have to struggle.

We are going to change the lives of our children with CF by offering scholarships, so they can live their "dreams" and have something to work towards. Going through high school with an incurable illness, you are faced with many different obstacles and stresses. We want to reward these wonderful and strong young adults, because they deserve it.

Lastly, BREATHE 4 TOMORROW wants to raise awareness about organ donation.My stepson Aaron Greene,  is here today because of an organ donor. he recieved the gift of life in the form of two donated lungs! If we can get just one person to become an organ donor, that is one life we may have saved. One person who may be breathing a little easier because we founded this organization. To all of you whose life as been touched by CF... Thank you for being you! And to all the darling children with CF...know that you are loved deeply and we will do all that we can to give you hope to BREATHE 4 TOMORROW !

... such a tough illness, especially for kids who dont understand why they have it ... makes my heart break...

Your Aaron is a strong guy - I remember you wrote about him in another post, and Breathe 4 Tomorrow looks like a great site - it had some excellent information on ways to help on it.

I truly wish you and Aaron and all involved, success with this venture !

Trish, a very touching story!  Aaron had a doublr lung transplant?  Thats amazing!  Organ donation is a subject people don't talk about often but they should.  No one ever wants to be asked if their loved ones organs can be donated but if you have thought about it before hand it may make the decision a little less painful.

Brian and Marie: I agree...for some reason we tend to keep it hush, hush...yet, most people when asked DO want their organs donated if it will help another person! I hope that through our foundation we can get more people to talk within their families about the subject. Death is such an emotional,  irrational and sometimes unexpected time for families it so much easier for everyone involved when you know what a family members wishes were...no second guessing or guilt for the survivors! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts...
