Our 19th year of fundraising brings great promise.
Vertex announced plans to submit a New Drug Application to the FDA in the fall for review and potential approval of the combination treatment for people with two copies of the F508del mutationas well as for individuals with one copy of the F508del mutation and a residual function mutation (which may include Emma). We urgently need your continued support. We will not rest until we find a cure.
Emma is attending Hennepin Technical College for Graphic Design and loves her full time job at Caribou Coffee.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting Emma, the mission of the CF Foundation and Great Strides!
Please support Emma's Tribe!
Help us reach our fundraising goal by donating to our Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
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.
