Join Team Jacqueline In the fight against Cystic Fibrosis!
Jacqueline is a kind and imaginative four year old girl who loves running, crossfit, ice skating, skiing, and swimming! She attends pre-k and is learning how to spell and write her letters. She enjoys reading her sight word books and singing all of the songs that she learns at school.
In addition to all of her activities, Jacqueline fights a daily battle with Cystic Fibrosis.
Jacqueline spends about two hours a day on treatments to help her stay healthy. She has two different nebulizer treatments twice a day, plus physical respiratory therapy twice a day to keep her lungs clear. She takes enzymes with every meal to help her digest her food. She also regularly takes a combination of antibiotics, probiotics, and vitamins. Through it all she maintains her happy smile and positive attitude.
She has started to notice that she has some differences from the other students, and explains to anyone that asks that she has a "special belly" and she needs enzymes when she eats her meals. This is one of the things that her family knows that she will encounter throughout her life, and explaining everything to her is simply one step in the process in making her feel confident and nonplussed by the daily routines of the disease.
Cystic Fibrosis is a challenging disease. It is imperative that we all hard to make sure that people like Jacqueline can live happy and healthy lives. It is not an easy road, but it can be one filled with joy and accomplishments.
Run with us on Saturday, April 1st in Central Park when CF Bane's army and The Lucosky Brookman Foundation join Team Jacqueline in a four mile run to benefit the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
