    I've known Mac Christensen for a number of years and personally know of his generosity. Countless individuals have been blessed by his giving attitude and most of the recipients have no idea that Mac was the donor. God bless Mac and his family. Happy Thanksgiving.

    My reader comment name says it all. I lost a daughter at age 21 to CF. She called CF "the Monster". The Monster moves in at diagnosis, you fight the monster everyday, knowing that no matter how hard you fight the Monster will win. Not if, not maybe, but WILL win. The only question is when. CF is considered an orphan disease because of the small patient population. It can not compete for funding with the "popular" ones like HIV, Diabetes etc for large government grants for research. We need people like Mr. Mac to fight the good fight and make this Monster survivable, which it is not, but families who cherish their children pray that it will be in the future. If you have not been touched by CF think of what it must be like to look in a child's eyes every day knowing that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you fight, that child will die gasping for air and in my daughter's words "coughing up a lung". May you always be blessed for your efforts, Mac Christensen.
