Tobias' Story (IG:@cfteamtobias)
October 26, 2016 He was born.
November 3, 2016 He was diagnosed based on the Meconium Ileus that landed him in surgery along with a NICU stay AND a Positive Newborn screen.
He has had a NICU hospitalization, 4 surgeries, Flu hospitalization, IV Antibiotics hospitalization, ER Visits, multiple CF Clinic and pediatric visits. He has caught all the sickness, viruses and such that little babies can. He has Class 1 mutations Cystic Fibrosis which has manifested not only in his GI System but also his respiratory system. Today, at 3 years old, he battles malabsorption issues, sinus disease and respiratory-mucus build up issues associated with the disease. He walks, runs, smiles, cries, plays, dances and loves. He watches Puppy Dog Pals faithfully.
We want a cure to be found in his lifetime. Please walk with us to raise awareness and donate to find a cure. This is our fourth year walking. #WhyIStride4Tobias #dauntlessnevergiveup
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
