Smokin’ Harley-Davidson Wine & Swine Festival to benefit Christy’s Courage Foundation.
Christy’s Courage Foundation is a 501C3 non profit helping children & adults born with Esophageal Atresia. EA a rare birth defect, which is being born without an esophagus. There are approximately 4000 to 5000 children born in the United States yearly and 10,000 worldwide who have Esophageal Atresia. I am an EA survivor, which is my inspiration to reach out to others like myself. I can offer other EA survivors my experience living with EA to help them and their families make their journey a little easier than mine. The nonprofit started as a book I was writing of my life and when I meet a little girl, with EA, who needed an adjustable bed to improve her health it became my mission to provide that much needed bed. After that accomplishment I was on my way to touching others with EA. My success is defined by the drive I have to find a cure for EA and the supportive people and organizations who partner with Christy’s Courage. When I meet the children living with EA daily, I have no doubt they are my reason to be successful. Our success is measured by improving one EA child’s life at a time.
