My adorable cousin, Harley, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was only 9 months old. Today, she is a happy and very energetic 13 year old who you may not even realize has CF because of her enthusiastic personality and positive outlook on life. SHE is the reason my family and I work so hard each year to encourage donations and raise awareness about CF.
But she is not alone....
An estimated 30,000 adults and children in the United States have CF. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Imagine taking your next breath as if you were breathing through a straw, the fear of what a common cold could do to you, taking an endless amount of medications and breathing treatments every day, or maybe even the possibility of a lung transplant. To make matters worse, there is NO CURE for CF.
Please consider donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so that the search for a cure can continue for our precious Harley and the many, many others who suffer from this devastating disease.
Thank you for your support!
