Welcome to Sherril's Personal Fund Raising Page
My nieces Laura (12) and Cate (9) Cheevers both have Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a complex, inherited disease that affects many of the body’s mucous glands, leading to problems in the lungs and gastrointestinal tract including failure to absorb nutrients. The disease affects about thirty thousand people in the U.S. Although there is no cure, comprehensive care has led to improved prognoses for many people and research is providing new insights and new therapies. This would not be possible without the support of all our family and friends.
Support me as I run the Boston Marathon with my brother Rob Cheevers (Laura and Cates dad) to raise much-needed funds for the Joey O'Donnell Cystic Fibrosis Center at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. This is where Laura and Cate are treated. The Joey O'Donnell Cystic Fibrosis Center is committed to providing first-class, individualized care for each patient and has established a multidisciplinary team to provide preventive care, active management of lung health, nutrition support, and psychological support. Successful treatment is accomplished through frequent outpatient visits with the CF team, direct communication with families, and educational programs.
Make a gift today to support Mass General and help my brother and I achieve our personal fundraising goal!! This will be our fourth time running the Boston Marathon for this cause and your generosity has been so greatly appreciated. We will not stop until a cure is found! Every dollar is making us one step closer!!
