In 2021, I celebrated my SEVEN year anniversary of working in support of the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis (CF). Since I started in 2014, we have seen so much progress, including the FDA approval of 3 life-changing drugs, most notably the approval of Trikafta in October 2019. Back in the 1950's, people with CF were not expected to live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, many people with CF are going to college, getting married and even having children of their own. While this progress is amazing and is something we celebrate, we are not done yet! The drugs that are approved do NOT work for everyone with CF. About 10% of the CF population will not benefit from these drugs. We continue our fight until there is a CURE for ALL people with CF, and we will not leave anyone behind. Thank you for joining me in my fight!
For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
I walk for them. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short.
By donating to Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Please support me!
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
