Hawaii (Part 2)
As I said in my earlier post, see Hawaii Part 1, the Mauli-Ola foundation graciously sent me to Hawaii with a team of people to help run two events to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis. Also part of that trip was ton of networking with surf companies and surfers to share with them about CF and the connection between CF and surfing/salt-water. We got to go to the O'Neill Sunset Contest and then the Pipe Masters contest (though the contest wasn't going the day we were there- it was all set up and ready to go). Through it all I got to meet some amazing people and share my life and story with them- and hopefully people know a little more about CF and want to get involved! Here are a few pics of the contests, and awesome waves at Pipeline and fun people I met :) ~Em

My name is Emily. I live my days with adventure, fun, and challenge...I'm an adult with Cystic Fibrosis with a heart for serving for God, raising awareness for CF, love for people, and can you tell, I love the beach?
Join me as I continue to fight against CF, and live each day to the fullest. I love my life and I love sharing it, because each day is truly a gift!
