My name is Tom Walker and I am the  father of 3 children,  Tiffany, 19, Joey, 17 and  Tommy 16.   Tiffany and  Joey both have C.F. Tommy does not. The first  time we found out about  C.F. was when Joey was  diagnosed.  He was about  18 months old.   I'm happy  to report that both Tiffany  and Joey are doing  wonderfully and are very  healthy. Neither of them  has had to spend the night  in the hospital.

 One reality about having children with a deadly disease is it effects the entire family. Tiffany is now a sophomore at Rim High and is doing very well She Hope's togo into Respiratory Care she was 16 in the picture below
  We feel very lucky to have such healthily  children. Both boys are in Little League and  Tiff is in softball. I believe that  living in the  mountains along with   praying a lot  and trying not to worry too much are some of the reasons I am blessed with  healthy kid Joey Is also attending Rim High and is in Wrestling
this is a more recent picture of Joe and Tom

My son,                                                Tommy was staying over  at a friend's house and the  friends mother went to buy

 a Lotto ticket.   On  returning she asked each kid what they would do if  they won the lottery.   One  boy said he would buy all  the candy he could. Another said he would buy  his family a new car.  When it came to Tommy's  turn he spoke right up and  said, "I would give all the  money to C.F. so they can  find a cure and save my
 brothers' and sister's  life".
 Out of the mouth of babes.
