Campaign Story

Hello everyone! We are the Mackey family. we are a family of four mom-Courtney, dad-Justin, Beautiful daughter Aluna, and our fur baby Basil. Our daughter Aluna has Cystic Fibrosis, which is a chronic disease that at a basic level causes fluids and mucus in her body to become thick and sticky plugging important passageways, air ducts, and affect her organs especially her lungs and pancreas.

Justin and I are carriers of the Cystic fibrosis (CF) gene. Even though we both would love to have another baby naturally, there would be the same likelihood that our second baby would have CF as Aluna did. Aluna endures a lot everyday due to having CF, which includes multiple chest compressions (pt) and air way treatment as well as having to take medication every time she eats, having to take multiple supplements, other medications, and other additives. CF causes difficulty breathing, digesting, and absorbing certain nutrients.

We would love to have another child but we want to make sure our next baby won’t have CF. Aluna is resilient, strong, and incredible in every way and as parents we would do anything to take away her pain. Unfortunately we don’t have the power to do that but we can love her and be there for her every step of the way. We can however ensure our second baby doesn’t have CF through IVF treatment.

Thank you for helping and making this possible for our family. Words cannot express our gratitude.
