My CF Climb Story
My boyfriend, Jamie Nichols, has Cystic Fibrosis. I am a strong advocate for spreading CF awareness. I will do anything I can to support him and others coping with this disease. We would love your support by donating to my CF Climb fundraising campaign or joining us for the climb on February 29th! #Nickels4Nichols
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.
While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short. By participating in CF Climb, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with CF today.
Please make a difference and support me by donating to my CF Climb fundraising campaign today!
Donate an amount that is meaningful to you, thanks.
