Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
Esther was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis 2 weeks after she was born in September 2019. Her diagnosis shocked our entire family as we have had to majorly adjust what our version of "normal" is. I'm happy to report that our girl is a FIGHTER, and as we come close to the 4 year anniversary of Esther's CF diagnosis we're asking you, OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, to help continue the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Whether you choose to particpate in the walk, participate through your donation, or even if you're supporting through thoughts and prayers for those with CF. Just know you are making a difference for those weighed down by this terrible disease! THANK YOU!
To participate, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation and start fundraising.
By joining our Great Strides team and making a donation, you will be part of a tenacious and passionate group of people committed to ending this disease. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
