There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
In 2012, I experienced the miracle of my lifetime - Kalydeco. Thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, many many tomorrows have been added to my life.
And while real progress has been made in the search for a cure, the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. Only 4% of those with CF are eligible for Kalydeco and there is still no cure for this devastating disease.
Will you join me in the fight againt Cystic Fibrosis? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
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.
