Proud of East Texas: Maci Drewry

By Joan Hallmark joanhallmark@kltv.com

Two years ago at the age of eight, Maci Drewry made a video about her fight against Cystic Fibrosis and loaded it on Twitter.

Davis Cleveland, star of the Disney television series "Shake it Up", saw the video, called Maci and invited her to California to visit his TV set. "Spy Kids" star Mason Cook, also became a friend and before long they were sponsoring Maci in fundraisers in California. Davis has also been to Tyler to help raise money for CF research. Together they have helped raise over a hundred thousand dollars to fight this fatal genetic disease.

You can see Maci's original video on You Tube at "Maci Drewry's story of fighting Cystic Fibrosis.
