CF in the Community-Frank's Walk

My CF Clinic puts out a quarterly newsletter about various CF topics.  The most recent letter included an interview with a young man named Cody Frank, who is about to embark on an incredible journey. Cody, who has CF, is going to be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.  This trail starts near the California-Mexico border and ends near the Washington-Canada border.  The trail is 2650 miles long and Cody anticipates walking about 25 miles a day.  A picture of the trail is provided below. 

Cody is dedicating this walk to his sister Jessie, who lost her life due to CF in 2009.  He will be carrying her ashes on the hike, a promise he made to her as her life was coming to an end.  The hike starts in 11 days.  Please show your support to Cody.  You can like is facebook page, follow his blog, donate in support of his effort, or check is webpage from time to time to see the progress of his hike.  If anything, please share his story.  I'd like to see full support of the CF community behind Cody and his hike.
