It is that time of year again where we are gearing up for the Great Strides Walk on Sunday May 21st. Each year this walk is a reminder of the daily fight we are in with this terrible disease. Faith was diagnosed at one month old and we have made it our mission to fight until CF stands for cure found. Faith is a remarkable little girl who is the definition of strength. She spends her days taking pills to keep her going, doing inhaled breathing treatments, Clinic Visits, X-rays, blood work, breathing tests and much more. Since diagnoses Faith has taken more then 21,000 pills and that doesn't include any antibiotics. While this may seem like a lot to some, this is her reality. This year and every year we walk to raise awareness and money for this disease. Your contribution is ensuring that Faith will live a long and healthy life and one day she will wake up and get to be a normal kid. If you could please click on the link below and sponsor Faith we would greatly appreciate it. With your help we know one day CF will stand for cure found.
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.
