With Olivia's g-tube placement surgery this past August, her sinus surgery in January, her upcoming GI procedures in March and likely GI surgery thereafter, the progressiveness of cystic fibrosis reiterates to us the importance of why we continue to climb and fundraise until a cure is found.
The first 4+ years of Olivia's life in relation to clinic visits, hospital visits, hospital procedures and surgeries were a breeze, compared to the past 6 months and what will ensue in the next two.
In 2014, Team Olivia-Polaris was the highest fundraising team for the CF Climb in Minnesota, raising over $15,400 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We thank everyone who joined us to make this amazing feat possible and we hope to be successful in the 2015 event and are well on our way! Team Olivia-Polaris currently has 36 registered climbers, has raised over $7,000 and is in 2nd place for the highest fundraising team and we have yet to account for the Polaris Foundation's matching gift! Thanks to all of you who've made this happen. We are sincerely grateful to those who have joined our team and will be climbing with us and to those of you who have donated to support us.
