It is time once again for Great Strides. As you know, we have been working, walking, hoping and praying for a cure for cystic fibrosis since Molly was diagnosed on Christmas Eve 1998, for Molly, Danny, Brian and thousands of others.
Today we are closer than ever before due to hard work and generosity of people like you. Molly and Danny have not been able to try the newest pills that target certain genes, but medicines targeting their genes are in the pipeline now. It is the CF Foundation's Therapeutics Pipeline that has created these medicines and continues to create new treatments to improve and extend the lives of those with CF. That pipeline is funded by all of us. As close as we are to a cure, we are not there yet and time is of the essence.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families and we invite you to attend if you are in the area. If you cannot attend, we welcome any and all donations of any size you can afford. Over 90 cents of every dollar goes directly into research. You can't beat the return on this investment -- improving and saving lives, being part of the cure.
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100% tax deductible and may be eligible for matching by your employer.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
