The Queen B herself, the madame, the Diva, miss little Sass Ella was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was in utero. Having no idea what CF was, we researched the diagnosis and were scared to say the least. However, we were determined to find the perfect balance of keeping her healthy and letting her enjoy her life to the fullest. Anyone who's ever met Ella knows that's exactly what she does - she lives life to the fullest! This angel is a ray of sunshine wherever she goes. She has brought so much laughter and happiness into the lives of her friends, family, teachers, and everyone who has the pleasure of knowing her. We thank God for the medicine, treatments, and continuing research being done to help her and other CF patients stay as healthy as possible. The Great Strides Walk is her favorite event all year because she gets to be surrounded by ALL the people she loves! Come walk with us, and have some fun with Ella at Great Strides :)
Donations and t-shirts are optional, and of course appreciated. Your presence at the walk means more to Ella than you'll ever know!
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.
