Welcome to my Page
This is Max (17) , and he has CYSTIC FIBROSIS. This year MAX will be riding 62 miles in the "Cycle For Life" a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States have CF and approximately 60,000 world wide. CF is a rare terminal genetic disease that currently has no cure. Because it affects such a small percentage of the population it gets very little funding and research from pharmaceutical companies. CF is an orphan disease. The CF Foundation was created to not only raise funds but to best direct those funds to the most promising research. This has helped the CF foundation extend the average life expectancy into the 30's. Unfortunately some never make it that far, and despite the advancements in treatments and medication, there is still no cure. Sponsoring Max will help raise the funds to find better treatments, medications and to FIND THAT CURE!
