Please Join Us….

…. in supporting a worthy cause, a wonderful family and amazing little boy!

On May 30th our family is participating in the GREAT STRIDES walk in Placentia CA. GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fund-raising event. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Rebekah and Anna have a very special friend named, Jonah, who is living with this disease. And so… we are walking as part of TEAM JONAH!

Jonah is a wonderful little guy with a sweet and gentle spirit.  Our girls love playing with Jonah and his twin brother Javan. Jonah is, indeed, an active and happy little boy but his days consist of endless medications and breathing treatments. I cannot begin to tell you how much I admire Jonah’s parents for their diligence and faithfulness in taking care of their son. They never rest in making sure he is taking everything he can and doing everything he can to continue to stay healthy and active. But still more is needed…… A CURE! 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, precious lives are lost to CF every day. That's why our help is needed!

We would greatly appreciate you sponsoring our family in the walk. The easiest way to make a donation it to go to www.teamjonah.com, click on our name and make a secure online donation.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. We are so eager to show our support for Jonah and his family by raising money for TEAM JONAH! Any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated and all contributions are 100 percent tax deductable!

Thank you for your support!

Josh, Emily, Rebekah and Anna Nelson
