__On Thursday Ciara Leckie participated in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Stairclimb to support her student, Emma Jefferson. Here is the message from her dad:
Dear Queen Anne Friends,
We know well that victories require patience and tenacity, this is certainly true for our daughter Emma Joy born with Cystic Fibrosis. Now 7 and tenaciously beating back CF, we realistically foresee Emma’s CF fully beaten by the time she reaches 17! Recent news is nothing short of incredible as there are now multiple CF research patients experiencing nearly full reversal of the CF effects under the experimental treatments! These results are for just one of the hundreds of CF gene mutations however, so we need your help. On December 1st, the E-Team which included Emma and second grade teacher, Ciara Leckie,took to the stairs for the 23rd Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Stairclimb. They summited the Tower’s 56 floors with Emma extending her goal to win her category! We are blessed that Emma has achieved such good health to even consider such a goal, but the aim remains a final cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
So please join this winning effort by linking directly to the E-Team climb link, or following our webpage and sponsoring our team. Our goal is to top last year's tally of over $7,000 as the 2nd highest individual fundraiser overall and 5th top team - and the deadline is December 31!
Everyone wants to be on a winning team, and this one is winning big. Every little bit helps and it is incredibly easy to donate and make a difference. Just click here!
Keith and Emma Joy Jefferson
