Our Great Strides Story
For the first time in 13 years, our family will miss the GREAT STRIDES walk since Jill will be in Denmark for a business conference. Even in our absence, we hope you will consider supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's (CFFs) research program because this organization is getting it done! Since Paige's diagnosis, the CFF has brought many drugs to market that have extended her life. In 2019, we hope Paige will be able to start taking a game-changing medication that will thwart disease progression in her lungs even more!!
As we close in on the cure, it is easy to get complacent. However, here are some ugly truths about CF:
* The disease killed 485 people last year.
* Somewhere between 150-200 people with CF underwent a lung transplant last year, and unfortunately, only half of these survivors will live another 5 years.
If we continue towards our target with urgency, we can and will help those in need get the new, life-saving discoveries they need to defeat CF! Thank you for your kind and steadfast support of Team Walk for Paige.
