Hi! I'm Shannon! I've been a CHaD patient since I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when I was 7 months old. I'm a 4th grader at Proctor Elementary School and super excited to be celebrating my 11th birthday soon.
I LOVE RUNNING!
Last year, I ran the 5K with my mom, and I BEAT HER BY 1 SECOND! :-P Someday, I hope to run the CHaD HERO half marathon.
I LOVE CHaD!
Having CF is hard. I spend a lot of time at CHaD, but the care and support I get at CHaD helps make the hospital stays and many appointments a lot easier. Like when my Child Life Specailist and I hide lizards for each other to find. Its super fun! I can't imagine CHaD without Child Life and it makes me feel good to fundraise so that Child Life is there for me, and other kids at CHaD.

I'm really excited to be this year's Kid HERO and I'm really glad you are a CHaD HERO for kids like me! Thank you!!
