Join Our Team and help Add Tomorrows!
Thank you for visiting Amelia's Angels and Penelope's Peeps!!!!!
Amelia and Penelope are Sisters who live near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They both have Cystic Fibrosis (or CF for short). CF is a terminal chronic genetic disease that affects their entire body. It's known mostly as being a lung disease because as a result of the genetic disorder, the lungs become scarred and eventually fail. But CF affects every major organ in the body! This year Amelia spent 2.5 weeks in the hospital and Penelope spent almost a week being treated for CF related issues.
Currently life expectancy is in the mid 30's but that's rapidly changing with new treatments and medications completely and totally privately funded by donors like you! over 90 cents of every dollar goes directly towards research. By donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (and this bike ride) you are funding a cure! Huge breakthroughs have happened for my daughters in the last 2 years. Orkambi was just approved this year for kids ages 6 and up! Orkambi is life changing but it's not the cure yet. But we are close.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause and helping add more tomorrows for Amelia and Penelope.
