Today I am so honored to have 12 year old Maddie Hagler as my guest blogger. Maddie is going in to 7th grade at Pizitz Middle School with my son Judson and her mom, Jennifer, has taken most of the amazing photographs that probably drew you in to The Style Gathering in the first place. We wanted to give Maddie a chance to talk about a cause that is very real for her and fill you in on a fun event taking place in Birmingham this weekend.

I’ve never been a guest blogger before, so here goes. My name is Maddie Hagler, I’m 12 years old and I was born with a disease called Cystic Fibrosis. It is a disease that causes my lungs and digestive system not to always work right. CF kids have to do special breathing treatments each day and take a bunch of medicine to stay healthy, and even then they usually spend several weeks in the hospital each year because they get infections in their lungs. I was very lucky this year and didn’t have to go.
I’m really excited to invite all of you to attend an event this weekend that is a really cool fundraiser for CF called Wingding Vestavia. There are a bunch of booths who all cook wings a bunch of different ways, and you get to taste and vote on your favorite. Rollin’ in the Hay will be be playing, there’s a fun kids’ zone and my dad has a booth that cooks “everything except wings.” The money that is raised will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Alabama and to the research that is being done at UAB for a cure.
There have been a ton of people who have worked so hard to help this event come together and I want to thank all of them. My family and I are so appreciative of all the support that we have seen in our community.
Our family has a motto that we live by: “Situations don’t define us, God does.” and “God is always with us.”
I hope that you will all consider attending this Saturday and help us make CF stand for Cure Found!
Thank you Ms. Buffy for letting me be a blogger!
