When I was just 18 weeks pregnant, I learned through genetic testing that our little boy had Cystic Fibrosis. Even before he was born, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation went above and beyond to support him and help me learn more about CF. The good news? There has never been a better time to be born with Cystic Fibrosis. The medical advancements that have been made even in the last ten years are life-changing! But we still have work to do, and we won't rest until CF stands for "cure found." In order for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to keep doing the great work that they do, from providing support to families and people living with Cystic Fibrosis to conducting research that is dramatically improving the lives of those affected by CF, we need your help. I personally won't quit until there is a cure, and I truly believe that there will be a cure found in Edwin's lifetime. Will you join us?
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
