My good friend Christy's daughter is currently at ACH getting what they call her CF "tune up." I absolutely love this family and am constantly amazed by Mackenzie's strength and determination in facing her diagnosis. Below is an email Christy sent me a couple of days ago; I would like to encourage each of you to help this great cause!
Well, we are still here in the hospital! They will repeat her Pulmonary Function Test on Monday and we'll see after that. We are thinking it will be a two week hospital stay and possibly home on IVs after that. Mackenzie's 12th birthday is on July 21st so hopefully we'll be home to celebrate!
We are trying to find ways to pass the time and thought one thing we could do is a little fundraising to help find a cure for the reason she is here. Last year - with your help - we surprised Mackenzie by raising as much money as we could while she was away at camp. She's decided not to go to camp this year because she doesn't want to chance a setback so soon after being out of the hospital. So, we are going to try to see how much we can raise while she is here in the hospital.

We're still posting updates from the hospital at www.thejobes.blogspot.com .
Thank you, thank you!
