My CF Climb Story
This is Jack. Jack was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at 4 weeks of age. CF is a very rare genetic disease that affects 30,000 people in the US. Less than 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year in the US. This life-threatening disease is due to a cellular dysfunction that creates a thick, sticky mucus in the body. It primarily affects organs in the respiratory and digestive systems that are necessary for breathing and getting nourishment from foods.
Currently the life expectancy for those with CF is 42 years of age. There is no cure for this devastating disease. However, significant progress has been made in the search for a cure through donations and support from people like you. The CF Foundations uses the money we raise to drive research initiatives in a vigorous search for a cure. By climbing, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.
Please join us by joining our team (virtually if you can't be here in person) or by donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Thank you for your support! It means so much to us!
