Bennett's 2016 Video :: This is Bennett's Story

Monday, April 4, 2016

Things with Bennett are going much better these days.  It's been more than 10 weeks since Bennett's most recent surgery and difficult back-to-back hospitalization.  Although we are trying to help Bennett gain the weight he lost through that experience and even though Bennett is still needing pelvic therapy to address his GI issues, he seems relatively back to normal.

Thankfully things have calmed down for our family, just in time for things to gear up for Bennett's Brigade 2016!

To kick off this year's CF Foundation Great Strides season, here's our newest Bennett's Brigade video.

Listen to 6 year old Bennett share, from his perspective, what it is like to be 6 years old and have CF...and what he wants most of all from those who have asked, "how can we help?":


Join Bennett's Brigade and help us find a cure for Bennett:


Nothing is more evident of how loved Bennett is than when I see a list of 7 different Bennett's Brigade teams, led by dear friends in 4 different states, who will walk in honor of Bennett this Spring, just exactly as they did last year.
