What I ride for CF:
Several years ago I came across a YouTube video from the channel known as The Frey Life. Mary and Peter created this channel, and through it share their day to day lives of Mary living with CF. Their story has inspired me to fundraise and create awareness for CF.
What is CF:
Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.
In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, sticky buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
