Dylan was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at birth and had heart surgery 3 weeks after birth. Dylan is the definition of a miracle. He fights everyday by enduring multiple breathing treatments daily, taking enzymes with every meal, and going to numerous doctor appointments. To Dylan, this is all he knows and is just part of his daily routine. He never complains about it and acts like a normal nine-year-old kid. Some of Dylan’s favorites are:
Favorite Superpower: To Fly
Favorite Color: Purple
Favorite Food: Donuts
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Wild and Reckless Sherbet
Favorite Sport: Skateboarding
Favorite Car: Bugatti Bolide
Favorite Season: Winter
Favorite School Subject: Math & Science
If you ask Dylan what his one wish in life is, he will tell you it is to not take enzymes every time he eats something. Join us on June 3rd to walk for Dylan and help us fight against CF! I know Dylan would love to see his friends, family, and classmates at the walk supporting him!
My Great Strides Story
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them.
Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
