Sicilee is a fun-loving 7 year old who was diagnosed at just 2 days old with Cystic Fibrosis. She's had 3 sinus surgeries due to CF sinus disease, which has proven to be her toughest battle so far. This year she's in 1st grade and has excelled despite numerous absences due to her CF. Sicilee also participates in allstar cheerleading to help keep her active, and recently started working on her back handspring .
It takes a lot of work, medications and dedication to keep our girl healthy! The CF community has made huge advancements in CF care, but we still need a cure. That's where you come in! Please consider donating to the CF foundation. If you can't donate, then please share and ask others to donate. And keep spreading awareness!
Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
