I am one of approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. This year I will be 70 years old. Who would have thought that back in 1949 that I would still be here. We are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I have walked in CF Walks for over 30 years to help raise money to continue the vital research that will ultimately result in a cure for CF. I am currently taking Symdeko that addresses the root cause of CF. This new drug has made a huge difference in my life and in the lives of those of us who have the gene mutation, double Delta 508. Participating in the clinical trial that helped develop this new drug was well worth it. BUT THERE IS STILL MORE WORK TO DO!!
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of those of us living with cystic fibrosis. PLease join my Team Foley - 70 Strong and support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today! I have a vested interest in finding a CURE for CF. My mantra that I think about every day is "Never, never, ever give up" UNTIL IT'S DONE and a cure is found.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
