My Great Strides Story
Since 2008, I worked with Kelsie and Dan Pablo because their son Keldan Pablo has Cystic Fibrosis.
For years I captained the Tulalip LIONS Club Team, helping out where needed, and bringing the fight for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis to the LIONS organization, and with the aid of other clubs we have made the walks successful.
I am now only part of Kelsie and Dan's team, as the Tulalip LIONS Club is no more, and our prior members are now in other clubs. Hopefully they have not forgotten our fight for a CURE commitment.
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.
