Liam Sweeney, age 10, was diagnosed before he was born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a progressive disease that substantially impairs normal respiratory and digestive functions. A typical “healthy day” for Liam involves 34 pills swallowed, 19 additional medications taken, 1 hour hooked up to respiratory therapy, 4 cans of high calorie formula consumed, 2 sinus washes executed, 3 salt replacement drinks ingested, and 8 hours connected to an IV pole through his feeding tube while he sleeps.
Ketti and Jason Sweeney are the dedicated parents of Liam and co-leaders of Team Sweeney. They work tirelessly to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. They have graciously agreed to partner with L4L for 2019 and together we will work on helping Liam and all children who suffer from this disease.
