IMPORTANT NOTE: To protect the health and well-being of the cystic fibrosis community and CF Foundation staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, the cystic fibrosis community is finding new ways to come together through virtual experiences. While we will not be together in person, we can be together in spirit and participate virtually - showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

My CF Climb Story

  • My Tillman

Four years ago Tillman came into this world with a bang and he hasn't stopped since. Our "T-Man" is one of a kind, he's loud and tender, he's kind and bossy and he has Cystic Fibrosis. His parents and sister are doing an EXCELLENT job of not letting that define him and an even better job at being his advocate on this road to living with CF.

 

Last year my sister and I had the great privalage to climb 2,000 steps together but this year like all other things the Arizona Stairclimb is going to be "virtual". While the event may not look the same the mission is still to add tomorrows for those living with CF.

Cystic fibrosis is a rare, life-shortening, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S., which causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breath over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers – all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives.

Sixty years ago, most children with cystic fibrosis did not live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to Foundation-based research and care, many people with CF are now living into their forties – achieving milestones once thought not possible, such as attending college, pursuing careers, and having a family of their own.

 

Please make a difference and support me by donating to my CF Climb fundraising campaign today!

I truly understand in these times money can be tight, if you can't donate, I just ask that you share or read how the CF Foundation supports those living with Cystic Fibrosis.
