Changes Coming to Strides Blog

Thursday, November 12, 2009
It’s not that I like change, mind you. I’m actually against it. However, I want to provide you, the reader, with more than just the happenings of the household. Beating cystic fibrosis is too important just to tell you that I ran “X” number of miles in a given week. Ending the threat of CF will require information, knowledge, and power. Offering the hope that is part of our motto requires that we buck up and do something drastic.

So stand by for some changes over the next several weeks. Some of them will be subtle and some will be pretty big. The first thing you’ll notice is that I changed most of the labels on my posts, and deleted a few posts that really had nothing to do with cystic fibrosis and Team Sam’s fight against it.

My next project will be a series of polls. I will run them for one week at a time in order to get to know my audience better. It is an audience that is growing continually and it’s time to get to know each other better.

So I'll start with me. I’m Dan. I’m a dad. My son and daughter are more precious to me than anything in the world, along with Alicia, my wife. Unfortunately, our daughter has cystic fibrosis. It is a pity that she has the disease, but I’ve grown a lot since learning that she had it.

I wouldn’t wish CF on my worst enemy, yet we have it in our family. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do some amazing things though. I get to watch a disease die.

I get to watch a disease die…

That's a powerful sentence: "I get to watch a disease die"
