This is my niece Caleigh who has cystic fibrosis. She is 22 years old and works as an RN in an emergency room. She always has a positive outlook and attitude and it's no wonder that she would devote herself to giving back to others as a health care professional.
There are over 700 mutations of the CFTR gene that cause CF. By supporting this walk you are helping raise the funds for innovative research, drug development and specialized care. Treatments, medications and frequent doctors appointments are part of her life. She faces all of it with a smile on her face and courageously takes on all that life has given her. Please consider donating to help support the advances in medicine so that someday CF may no longer be a part of her life. To help find a cure!
