JOIN US Sunday, May 19th FOR GREAT STRIDES melissashiffman
As always, I stride in memory of my brother, Jason, and for my family (& friend family), who I plan to grow old with. Please read my recent blog on Jason https://on.cff.org/2NInVmh.
Every year I talk about how excited I am by drugs coming through the CF pipeline due to all of your generous tax-deductible contributions. There is a new CFTR modulater that is almost ready to go to the FDA for approval. Friends - I know people who have been on the clinical trial and they tell me they are reevaluating their futures because it has made such a profound difference in their ability to breathe and function. And I will be able to go on it when approved! The CF Foundation has also committed $100million to research anti-infectives as patients are living longer and becoming resistant to the antibiotics we've taken all of our lives.
Your contributions go directly to medical innovations such as this study. So, thank you and please consider continuing your support to the CF Foundation. Our family appreciates it more than I can verbally express.
