The following story is published by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation


Hailey was born a fighter on August 9, 2007.  She was diagnosed with CF through newborn screens after more than a week in the NICU at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. 

She has had many surgeries/procedures due to her having CF, has been hospitalized several times and she spends several hours every day doing vest therapy and breathing treatments. 

She has appointments with her pulmonary doctor every three months when she is doing well, and more often when she is sick. She also takes a lot of medication. All of this is keep her as healthy as possible! 

She is a fun loving, independent girl that does not let CF stop her!! She loves to play softball, basketball, tumbling and is also a cheerleader! She goes to school and cheer practice even with picc lines in place! She is an amazingly strong girl!! 

She has 2 brothers - one older and one younger and she is a great sister to both! She loves her family! 

She loves raising awareness for CF and is usually open and honest with anyone about what she goes through on a daily basis. Awareness is one of the reasons why she looks forward to the Great Strides walk every single year! She calls it Hailey’s Heroes day - Hailey’s Heroes is our team name. 

Her friends and family all work together to raise money to help find a cure for the thousands of people who are living with CF. We have high hopes that because of all of the amazing work that the CF Foundation is doing, we will see a cure in Hailey’s lifetime! 

The CF Foundation is a wonderful organization. They have helped to accomplish amazing things in the treatment of CF. Years may be added to the lives of many CF patients thanks to the work that is being done! We will continue to work with The CF Foundation and continue raising money until a cure is found!
