|With your help we can find a cure|
My name is Brandon Hargroves. I have
Cystic Fibrosis, which is a very serious disorder that affects my life.
It is genetic so you can't "catch" it. At birth I had three surgeries and
had about a third of my intestines removed. I have had 6 sinus surgeries
and will soon have another one. I take many medicines. I can't digest my
food without my enzymes. I spend between 2 to 3 hours each day doing breathing
treatments. I take lots of medicines and antibiotics. I take Pulmozyme
and TOBI, which are both VERY expensive. I have had many IVs for about
2 weeks each - both at home and the hospital. I got a port-a-cath in March of 2001.
Someday I may have to have
a lung transplant. I am trying to save up money for my medical expenses.
If you would like to help please email my mom or dad at our email address
and we will email you back how you can help. Thank you for reading about
Don, Sherry, and Brandon
