I am Jackie Parfet. I am walking for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis this Saturday. Steve and Tammie Babbitt are graduates from Point Loma Nazarene University. Their son has Cystic Fibrosis. Tammie explains it all so much better than I do:
My Great Strides Story from Tammie Babbitt
James was admitted May 2019 with lung function in the 50s- his lowest lung function ever. He was hospitalized again in July.
On his 17th birthday, Trikafta was FDA approved. James started taking it soon after. Within a week his lung function was at 92. He has been able to maintain lung function in the 90s since with no hospitalizations.
THIS is life changing!
THIS is what we've been praying for and why we've been participating in Great Strides all these years.
We keep walking- even virtually this year - because we want every individual with CF to have an experience like James's.
Trikafta doesn't work for everyone.
We're in this until it's done. For everyone!
Thank you for considering to donate this cause.
