Our Message

I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 2012 and I sell lemonade to raise money for a cure through Cassidy's Lemonade Stand.  I know it isn't possible for everyone to come see me at my lemonade truck throughout the summer but I wanted to give you the option of purchasing a 'VIRTUAL LEMONADE' by making a donation (and getting a tax receipt).
Your support means so much to me on my quest to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. This past year has been really hard.  Last spring, my lung function dropped to the lowest it has ever been.  I had to go on months of different antibiotics through my nebulizer and different medicines that tasted really bad.  My doctors told me that I was going to have to be hospitalized.  I was so scared.  After 4 months of many treatments, my lung function came up a bit and I didn't have to go to the hospital.  My daily routine consists of an hour of treatments before school which includes blowing into my PEP device for respiratory physiotherapy, taking medicine through my nebulizer and taking antibiotics through another inhaled device.  Throughout the day I have to take 30 enzyme pills with my meals & snacks to help me digest my food.  When I get home from school I do a set of treatments and than again before bed I repeat the same routine with my PEP, nebulizer and medications. to help keep my lungs clear. I also participate in lots of exercise & activities such as swimming, jumping on the trampoline and singing to stay healthy! I go to the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic in Saskatoon every 3 months for my regular check ups.  I really like the doctors and nurses who help me but I still feel really scared every time I have to get needles.  
I'm trying really hard to be brave! Recently, I had an incredible breathing test of 102% and that makes me so happy!
Because of your support you have helped us take steps towards a cure. We are working hard to meet with elected officials in Canada to help figure out a process to get rare disease medication available to me and the others in Canada who desperately need it.   The more money that is raised right now, the more advocacy and research can be done!  I continue to have faith that a cure will be found and I thank you so much for helping me!
