My name is Reis. I am 8 years old and was born with cystic fibrosis. I was born early and stayed in a hospital for a long time. The day after I was born I had to have surgery twice in the same spot in my stomach. The scar is still there.
I have to take 15 pills a day and I have to do PT with a vest and nebulizer. I have been swallowing pills since I was 2 . I am doing fine now but if I didn't take my medications I could get very sick.
One of my medications is called Trikafta. This is a very special medicine that the CF foundation helped to pay the money for the research. I was very lucky because I could start on these medications when I was only 2 years old so I have not been very sick. I still have to be careful every day because I have a risk of getting more sick than other people.
My grandma set up Team Reis when I was born. I am very excited because this is the first year that I have been able to join the team and walk with them. Please will you help me to reach my goal and make a donation to the CFF.
Please support me!
. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found.
