Austyn was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 5 weeks. She is now 9 years old and has had multiple procedures at Children’s Hospital, as well as routine care over the years.
There is no cure for this devastating disease. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived past 4 years old. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s. We've even been blessed to meet people at Sunny Shores Sea Camp in their 40s and 50s! That is because of donors like you!
By walking today, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. We walk for them and Austyn and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
