In this newsletter: a health update on Dean, recap of the CF Climb and progress on Dean's $90k goal.
Health Update
After a bit of a scare with a declining lung function, Dean had a round of antibiotics and a repeat lung function proved that he was on top of his game, back up at 116%. We learned a lot from this past year and have made some adjustments to how we do things, particularly on clinic days.  
CF Climb for Life
Well, he did it, along with many many awesome friends!  15 min and 51 seconds to climb 58 flights, a little over 1,200 steps. It was truly an awesome morning watching him, his buddies and many of our friends (old and new) take on the challenge with him.  Dean even took the microphone and said a few words to the crowd after he received two awards:  1 for the top fundraiser and another for the top fundraising team. Thank you so much to all of those that gave their time, money and energy to help him make this an awesome year and help him win those awards. They are proudly displayed in his room. Check out the pictures on his Facebook page.
#somethinglikethis update
We are just truly stunned to see how many people stepped up and did #somethinglikethis to help him meet his goal and raise more awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. He raised and inspired (as of today) a total of $80,255 dollars this year - 89% of his goal!  We casually mentioned when he set this goal that, if reached, we would purchase him the lego death star so he's extra motivated to get there. Check out his video plea. We honestly cannot thank you all enough for doing everything in your power to help him get there. God's hand in this is amazing and we are thankful for how your hearts were guided to help us. From near and afar, each and everyone of you hold such a special place in our hearts. One day we will be celebrating a cure together. Much love to you and your families as we go into this Holiday Season.
