Help us find a cure!
My team, "Hayley's Cure Quest," will be walking again for the 6th year in a row! Griffin the Golden Fluffalo will be there too (follow him on Instagram @goldenfluffalo).
This walk raises money for research and development of drugs and treatments to help those with CF. Will find a cure and end the suffering of those with CF and their families.
I personally walk for my dad, who has cystic fibrosis and says he is the luckiest person in the world (he is). This is a disease that requires hours of daily treatments, medications, hospitalizations and vigilance just trying to stay healthy. It makes breathing, something most of us take for granted, incredibly difficult for those with cystic fibrosis.
As a child of someone with CF, I have a personal connection to the walk already. But after doing the walks when I was younger, I have even more motivation. At the walks, I met other families who struggle with cystic fibrosis. Many of the people with cystic fibrosis are children and teens. That is another reason why I would like to be able to contribute to new treatments, and hopefully a cure for CF.
Together, I hope we can make cystic fibrosis a thing of the past. Until it's done.
