About Alexxa

Alexxa was born on November 17, 2004. She was immediately the light of our lives. I knew something wasn’t quite right and started to become very concerned, as did family and friends. On August 2, 2006, our lives were forever changed when Lexx was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. We had never even heard of the disease, yet we were devastated.

It is a genetic disorder that you are born with. Your body needs water and salt to work and grow. Water and salt move through tiny cells in your body. In people with CF, water and salt can not move through the tiny cells easily which makes it dry. The body then produces thick, “icky, sticky stuff” called mucus. Mucus forms in the lungs, which helps you breathe and the pancreas, which helps you digest your food. Mucus sticks in your lungs and throat and makes you cough. Mucus is also a friendly home for germs and bacteria which can make you sick.

Fortunately, God has blessed us tremendously. Alexxa is surpassing everyone’s expectations! We thank God everyday for our little girl, and pray continuously for a cure. Thanks for visiting our page and may God bless!
