My Great Strides Story
Hey everyone! Thank you for your continued support over the years in my journey with CF. If you know me at all you know how passionate I am about raising CF awareness and raising money for research. There has been a lot of progress in CF research since I was born in 1980. There is more research to be done because there isn’t a cure yet.
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.
You can support me!
