Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that makes Oliver and Owen produce too much thick, sticky mucus that can damage numerous organs, but particularly the lungs and digestive tract. For too long, CF has robbed people of tomorrow's. Progressively limiting their ability to breather and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF.
I walk for my sons Oliver and Owen! We found out about Oliver’s diagnosis through prenatal screening almost 3 years ago and Owen’s through the newborn screen.
After going through the stages of grief and handing all worry to God, we have grown stronger as a family and as parents. CF is a part of our lives, but does not define our lived because of the advances made in CF research and medicine (even just in the last 3 years!). Which brings us hope and will change the lives of those living with CF. Last year Oliver was able start Orkambi, which helps maintain the balance between salt and water, keeping mucus from clogging the ducts of organs.
We are so grateful for the support of each and every one of you!
