Socially Distanced Make-Believe Tea

Created by Peggy Reitz

This Year's Virtual Fundraiser

Many of you dear friends have been loyal supporters of my annual “Make-Believe Mother’s Day Tea.” Obviously, this year is different in many ways. Because printing and supplies were hard to come by, I’m launching a “Socially Distanced Make-Believe Tea” as a new way to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and my son David.

It’s been a very good year, mainly because David was able to start taking Trikafta – a medicine you helped develop by supporting the CFF. Last October, the big announcement came, “Today marks a tremendous breakthrough and exciting news for people with cystic fibrosis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Trikafta™ … more than 90 percent of people with CF could eventually have a highly effective therapy for the underlying cause of their disease.” (For more information, go to: cff.org/Life-With-CF/Treatments-and-Therapies/Trikafta). It’s tremendous for David – he’s gained more than 20 much-needed pounds and his lung capacity (PFTs) are the highest in years. But this still isn’t a real cure.

Until a cure is found, with the support of his amazing wife Kristen and precocious, almost-5-year-old Nora and oh-so 2-year-old Claire, David will continue his twice-daily sessions of physical therapy, inhalations and countless medications that help prevent persistent lung infections that limit his ability to breath. Your 100% tax-deductible donation will help keep Nora and Claire’s Daddy healthy. We deeply appreciate your support.

With appreciation,
Grandma Peggy Reitz
