Dear Friends & Family,
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them and hope you will support us in our efforts.
Thanks to the CFF and their ongoing research, many amazing treatments and medications are in the drug development pipeline. In 2015, the FDA approved Orkambi, a medication that tagets the underlying cause of Cystic Fibrosis in people with two copies of the most common CF gene mutation. In October 2019, the FDA approved Trikafta, the first triple combination therapy available to treat patients with the most common cystic fibrosis mutation.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By participating in a virtual walk on June 5 (65 Roses Day), we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis.
