Thank you for visiting our Team Page!
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that ravages the lungs and digestive system. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundations is the world’s leader in the search for a cure and is dedicated to attacking CF from every angle. Its focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF and—ultimately—to find a cure. By pursuing a wide range of promising strategies, the Foundation and its nonprofit drug discovery and development affiliate, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc. (CFFT), have built a robust pipeline of approved and potential therapies that tackle CF from all angles, including drugs targeting the underlying genetic cause of the disease. Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of CF Foundation or CFFT support.
Sydney is now a senior in high school getting ready to attend SUNY Oswego in the fall. She refuses to let CF define her or hold her back. It takes a person with CF 5 times the energy to complete the most simple task than for a person without CF. But Sydney lives life with a zest that few of us ever experience. She keeps up with her school work, races on the high school ski team, is a ski instructor at Gore Mountain on the weekends and performs in the high school and community musicals. She has been given the gift of voice and she pushes the limits to be able to follow her passion of performing and singing in musicals. This winter when the show was over she went into the hospital for another round of IV antibiotics to help clear the bacteria that populate the lungs of CF patients and destroys their lung function.
The CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers cyclists to take action and demonstrate their fight in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis in a tangible, emotional and powerful way.
