Takes A Breather from CF in the Grand Canyon

"This trip was such a great gift that has given us all precious memories to carry with us for the rest of our lives"   -Ashley

I wanted to take this time to thank you for making my dream of going to the Grand Canyon with my family come true. This is something that I have always wanted to see but never thought I would be given the chance to do. Once there, I never dreamed of being able to actually getting to the bottom of the canyon since it would be way too hard for me to get down there myself or even on a donkey, but the helicopter ride made that all possible.

The trip to the Grand Canyon was everything I wanted and more! I got to see what it was like to see the Grand Canyon from an eagle's eye as I walked over the Grand Canyon on a sheet of glass and looked down. My favorite part of the whole trip was when we were able to fly over into the canyon on the helicopter ride. The sight took my breath away (but for once I didn't mind). The Hualapai Ranch we stayed at was great and the people there were wonderful, and I will never forget swimming in the fountains at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

I am currently getting ready to go on the list to get a lung transplant and I cannot thank you enough for giving my family and I one last trip before going down this hard road. Thanks to your organization we will all be able to look back at this dream trip during the hard times and smile. This trip was such a great gift that has given us all precious memories to carry with us for the rest of our lives. Please let me know if there is anything I or my family could do to help with this fantastic foundation.

Thank you all once again!
