    CF Foundation–Championed Bill Passes 

    The House of Representatives has passed the Ensuring Access to Clinical Trials Act (EACT). Thank you for your hard work to make this possible.

    EACT ensures those with rare diseases, like cystic fibrosis, can participate in clinical trials without fear of losing the vital government benefits some rely on to support themselves and their families.

    This achievement would not have been possible without the efforts of the CF community

    It is the passion, perseverance and dedication to the CF community that has built support for this cause on Capitol Hill, and resulted in this momentous achievement.

    We have more CF therapies in the pipeline than ever before, and EACT can help those therapies make it into the hands of the people who need them the most. Read more about EACT’s passage here.

    Thank you for your help and determination! This victory would not have been possible without all of us working together, we are adding tomorrows for people with CF.

    I want to thank all our partners, donors and volunteers working with the Cara Young Fish for Life and your dedication to our 501(c)(3) Public Charity benefiting Cook Children’s and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I would also like to thank our local and State Representatives that allowed me to meet with them over the years to discuss this disease.

    The Power of Trust depends on who and what your Trust is based on 

    This month marks 26 years in the Real Estate business for me, not to bad for an old or maybe I should say “young” cowboy and Ironworker! Sometimes it doesn’t seem that long and other times it feels like 50+ years. Have you ever noticed so many things in life are like that.

    When I was still working as a Union Ironworker on high-rise buildings I decided to test the theory of the Earth’s gravitational forces and fell 3 stories, breaking my back and sundry other items in this already damaged body. Approximately 6 months of physical therapy later I had no idea what to do with my life. Lot’s of “unknown” issues going on in our minds can make trusting in God’s plan even harder. Believe me I prayed really hard for God’s direction, especially since my schooling after high school consisted of 6 years professional rodeo and Ironworking mixed in and this did not seem to impress any employers that I met with. Because I had a family I needed to work doing something, an opportunity came along that if you would have told me that would happen and I would agree to take on this opportunity I’d said you were crazy and that was selling Electrolux vacuum cleaners door to door and then in Sam’s and a few other stores. To be honest and believe me when I say I really didn’t want to sell vacuum cleaners, especially door to door but it seemed like the more I rebelled against it the more I knew that this is what I should do, at least for a while to make some monies until something else would come along. Now my prayers were more along the line of please Lord, bring something else along Sir. With that being said I was very thankful for at least having a job that actually paid well.

    God’s plan for us is so much higher and better than what we can even imagine and one day I sold some cleaning products to a very cute young lady named Cherri Huddleston who owns Cherri Huddleston Properties. She mentioned I should get into Real Estate and the rest is kinda like they say…history! Again, thankful for the complete recovery from the fall and the vacuum sales as it allowed me to sell my product in the evening and on weekends while attending Dick Smith’s school of Real Estate or as I named it…Uncle Dick Smith’s school of fun, comedy and great real estate stories that helped in a better understanding of the curriculum.

    Along this 26 year path the Lord has blessed me with a wonderful business, clients, customers, lasting Realtor friendships and making more money than I would have ever imagined. Also because of my families declining health I was able to structure my business to assist them better. Wow, I look back and all I can say is thank you Jesus for You truly have done exceedingly greater than all I could have ever imagined or actually even hoped for! 

    I shared this not to draw attention to me or state that I have mastered a complete trust in God’s plan but I’ve learned and continue to learn that when you and I put our trust in God He will do exceedingly more for you as well. It sure didn’t seem like He was doing any of this for me as I sold vacuum cleaners for almost 9 months before the real estate opportunity came along so hang in there!  headstraight_weblg
