Team Bianchi

Be Strong, Love Life, Cure FA!

 Team Bianchi is excited to return this year with determination to raise money to help find a cure for all those who live with FA. From the start, I chose to not make FA my identity. FA is a part of my life, but it does not define who I am. When I was diagnosed at the age of 13, Be Strong, Love Life, Cure FA bracelets were designed and given out at local fundraisers to every student in my school, soccer and lacrosse teammates, teachers, friends, and family members to wear. I chose to place these words on the bracelets because that is how I wanted to continue to live my life ~Strong with a love for life. Although living with FA is not easy, I choose to maintain a positive attitude and make healthy lifestyle choices. I am now 23 years old. I graduated from University of Hartford, moved to South Carolina from CT with my family, secured a full time job with Blackbaud, and now live independently.

THE ONLY THING MISSING IS A CURE FOR FA! I can not do this alone, so I am reaching out to everyone. PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TO TEAM BIANCHI so the researchers can find a cure! They are getting closer and it is our hope that a cure will be here soon. BUT, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We would be so grateful for your donation to help to move the process along. Friedreich's Ataxia is a progressive disease so the sooner they find a cure, the better it is for everyone with FA.
