We are so overwhelmed by the support we have had the last 8 years and would love to have even more this year. Your support at the walk is priceless to us. We love seeing you there and walking with you. We know not everyone can afford a large donation to the foundation, but even $5 means so much to our family. Every dollar donated brings a cure closer to Marcus. We believe that can happen in his life, and the sooner it happens the longer life Marcus will have. We have already seen the benefits of the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Marcus is living a healthier life than 8 year olds did 5 and 10 and 20 years ago! The more we learn about Cystic Fibrosis and the efforts the CF Foundation is making, the more grateful we are to be associated with this truly extraordinary organization.
Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
