Eva was honored, the day before she passed away with the Summerhayes Award for her work on behalf of Cystic Fibrosis. Quite a legacy for such a young life. You can view the beautiful video of Eva receiving this award here.
As you may know, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is near & dear to my heart and has been since I was about 12 years old when I first read a book about a family battling CF. Eva's life illustrates why it is a cause that remains dear to me.
We found out, when my sister was pregnant, that she is a carrier of the CF gene~most likely passed to her from our mother. We had no idea. Fortunately her husband isn't a carrier & we didn't have to worry about Teag. We were "lucky."
I, for one, look foward to the day when "CF" stands for "Cure Found" and no child will have to fight the battle against this killer disease with the pretty nickname (65 Roses).
Please join me in praying for Eva's family & friends as they grieve her loss. Perhaps visit her blog & leave them a message. To learn more about Cystic Fibrosis & how you can help in the search for a cure, please visit this site.
