Great Strides – Game On!!
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been my professional home for two years and half of that has been during a pandemic. Who would have thought a year ago that everyone would be living a life like that of our fighters with cystic fibrosis? Six Feet Apart - Face Masks - Quarantine - Hand Washing - Social Distancing. These concepts are now a part of our daily lives. And in just a very small way, you can appreciate what it’s like to live with CYSTIC FIBROSIS every day.
CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes sticky and thick mucus to build up in the lungs, pancreas and GI tract, causing persistent lung infections, malnutrition, poor growth, liver disease, diabetes and male infertility. For this reason, minimizing contact with germs is a top concern for people with CF.
The past year has also been challenging for fundraising, as so many have been impacted financially by these challenging times. But no pace is fast enough when you’re waiting for a breakthrough, so I’m recommitting myself to step up my personal Great Strides fundraising – Game On!
Please support me. Your contribution will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with CF by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Thank you!!
