This will be BZ's Buddies 12th year fundraising through Great Strides. It is because of the tireless work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that Brayden has the medicines and treatments he needs to live a more normal life. Without the recent advances in treatments and the discoveries that have been made to better the care available to those living with CF, BZ would not have the enzymes he needs to properly absorb and digest his foods. He would be lacking essential vitamins and nutrients that fuel his growing body. He wouldn't have the incredible respiratory machine he has that performs his chest physical therapy twice each day, vibrating and loosening the mucous in his lungs to ensure it is not building up, causing infections and illnesses that could be life-threatening. Most importantly, he wouldn't have the newest available medicine, Trikafta, that works to correct the defect of his mutated CF gene at the CELLULAR level. WOW, what amazing advancements have been made in just these past 12 years since we joined the effort to find a cure for CF as BZ's Buddies.
As we continue to make incredible gains towards a cure for CF, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the backbone that is working so hard to fund the research needed to improve the lives of Brayden and all those living with CF. God has brought some incredible people onboard at the CFF both locally, and nationally, and He is equipping scientists with the knowledge and tools they need to help us win this battle.
Funding this research comes almost entirely from money raised by the CFF, and that is why I am asking for your donation today. Will you partner with BZ's Buddies to help us make incredible strides in 2023 to fund the cure? Will you help us give Brayden and all those living with Cystic Fibrosis more and better tomorrows? Brayden's future looks so bright, and I will continue to fight hard for a cure until all those living with CF have one. No amount is too small to make a difference, and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Help us make CF stand for Cure Found!
