My CF Climb Story
Alma is 5. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a chronic, progressive respiratory and digestive disorder, when she was one week old. Her diagnosis was the scariest moment I hope I ever experience. I imagined a lot of terrible things in her future. What I didn't let myself imagine was where we are today: she's in school, full of energy, wears us out with her constant "let's pretend" games. Because of the incredible work of the Cystic Fiborsis Foundation, who are the backbone behind everything from the high standards of care her clinic provides to innovative treatments promising long, healthly lives for kids with CF, Alma is doing great.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers. I climb for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By participating in CF Climb, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me?

CF Climb is a unique event that empowers participants to take their search for a cure to new heights.
