Meet Gabriella:

Hi, my name is Gabriella - but you can call me Gabby, for short! My Daddy came up with the nickname "Kittybear", when I was a baby. If you would like to hear the story behind my nickname, just ask my Mommy (she LOVES to tell the tale!). I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at 21 days of life. CF is a genetic disorder that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe overtime. In a nutshell: it causes mucous production to be very thick, instead of thin, like yours. This in turn makes me more susceptible to lung infections and limits my ability to digest food.
I have struggled all my life with GI issues, stemming from CF. Thankfully, I have only suffered from 2 lung infections and neither required me to be hospitalized. CF was first diagnosed in the 1950’s; it affects every organ in the body, with the exception of the brain and kidneys. When 1st discovered, kids were lucky to live to the age of 5. Thanks to all of the research and the many medical advances made, people with CF are now living longer! At the time of my birth (in 2014), the average life span was 35 years. Just 7 years later, the average is 50!! With more research (made possible through donations to the CF foundation), we are very hopeful there will be a cure found, in my lifetime. The amazing advancements in medicine have helped me and so many others - this year, I was started on a new gene therapy medication, called Trikafta. This treatment partially corrects the CFTR protein which helps to target the underlying cause. It has improved lung function, decreased pulmonary exacerbation and has decreased sweat chloride. PULMOZYNE is an inhaled medication taken once daily - this medication breaks down the sticky substance that is left behind from the WBC’s (white blood cells). In turn, this helps to reduce the amount of lung infections that people with CF are prone to get. CREON is a pancreatic enzyme that is delivered straight to my GI tract - this helps me properly digest my food. ALBUTEROL opens my airways. VEST THERAPY loosens the mucous in my lungs. HYPERAAL helps to moisten the mucous, so body brings it up and out of my lungs.
Here is what my typical day looks like:
PRE breakfast, I take a multivitamin, 3 capsules of pancreatic enzyme (Creon) gene therapy (Trikafta) and water with added miralax.
Before I leave for school, I receive my 1st therapy session (of the day) - this particular session is an unusually short one, lasting about 15-20 minutes. This early a.m. routine involves my taking Albuterol through an inhaler. Then, I have to wear a vest for my chest therapy (it physically shakes me about!). During this time, I’m also breathing through a nebulizer to receive hyper-saline – this goes on for about 15 minutes. When I have school, therapies stop, until I return home.
Before lunch and my snack, I have to take more of the pancreatic enzymes.
After school, I have my second therapy. I’ll repeat the process above, as well as receive pulmozyme after the hyper saline. This one only takes about 5 minutes to inhale.
Then, before dinner, I take more pancreatic enzymes and another dose of my gene therapy.
My parents are dedicated to ensuring I get all my medications and therapies each day. Since I started going to school, it has been a little overwhelming and hectic. But they make sure it gets done! I’m taken for pulmonology appointments every 3 months. At each appointment, my doctor does a throat culture to look for bad bacteria and I have to do a lung function test. So far, I have been diagnosed twice with pseudomonas (this is BAD bacteria), but no hospitalization was needed. My body responded well to those 30 days of inhaled antibiotic treatment. Every year, I have to do extensive lab work and chest x-rays. So far I’m a healthy, thriving, amazing little girl - all of this, due to my parents dedication, research done and being done and because of all the donations received.
Please help me and others have added tomorrows. Your donations of any size, help and are so very appreciated. Please fight with us!

Everyone meet Buckeye! Here's a progression of his mood as the appointment went on, first he was real sleepy and wanted nothing to do with us. As soon as the treat jar opened up he was all ears. (no he's not frowning, he's just got a cute little mohawk ❤️)

After a little over 8 years, I finally had to say goodbye to my little man Taz... Thank you so much for all the love and kindness you've shown our family all the way through this special furbaby's life... y'all saved him several times and helped give him the best life possible... I am forever grateful
Presley Marie was ready for Santa!!
Chewy was seen by Dr. Dane yesterday. She ran tests and gave him medication. She was very caring and positive. He feels a bit better. I’m very grateful for the treatment he received.
I took our son (our dog Cash) in for his annual checkup and to get his rabies vaccine. Even with the Coronavirus the staff was outstanding.
Didn’t y’all a pet portal that we could log into
Today is Giving Tuesday! Facebook is matching up to $7 million in donations!

Feel free to donate gently used items such as leashes, collars, harnesses, crates, and beds.

We are run by a a small group of women who volunteer their time to help rescue and rehabilitate around the clock. The founder of our rescue is a veterinarian, Dr. Emily Basten. This is why we focus on the dogs who are medically neglected or abused. Many of our dogs have been found homeless on the streets or at risk for euthanasia in over-crowded shelters. Unlike many other rescues in Texas, we are not an adoption based organization. What we do is strictly rescue and transport in order to off-set the incredible over population our state faces." #adoptdontshop #GivingTuesday ***If you are sharing this post, don't forget to share the original message with the drop off information.***
We can now confirm that Georgia has ended up in heaven! O'Connor Road Animal Hospital wanted an office pet that they could foster while trying to find her a furever home! Just look at her! If she does not get adopted, I think she is going to have to stay! 😍🐾
Taz let me take some pics after the appointment while Momma finished the paperwork... He was grumpy inside, but chilled out again outside on the Jeep
Pet Portal is MISSING from the new website...….
As promised...here are the pics of Taz in his new bowtie... Thanks again for all you do
Daisy had her babies I love my basset hounds
