My name is Kayla, and I am 33 years old living with cystic fibrosis.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. CF is a life threatening lung disease that affects every aspect of our daily lives. We do breathing treatments, take many different medications, and exercise daily just to keep our lungs functioning as well as possible.
Because of people like you, new treatments and medications keep coming through the pipeline. Most recently, Trikafta was approved by the FDA and has been changing lives! It has completely changed mine, and I couldn't be more grateful. AFter only 2 weeks on the drug, my lung function has increased from 40% to 48%! This is amazing and is opening up so many possibilities for me!
So please continue to join me and fight cystic fibrosis. We need a cure desperately, and I am so hopeful that it will happen during my life. Thank you to everyone who has donated in the past for making Trikafta possible and for supporting me in all my fund raising efforts!
