Gabby is an awesome 6 year old who happens to have cystic fibrosis. She was in the gray area of CRMS for a few years before they changed her diagnosis to full CF about a year ago. Gabby is a busy girl and does not let this diagnosis limit her too much! She plays softball, basketball, and soccer, and dances jazz and hip hop. Her vest and nebulizer treatments take a lot of time out of her day for sure, but she is a trooper!
We are walking in Great Strides because we want to raise funds for the CF Foundation. Gabby's CF mutations are rare and therefore she is not eligible for modulator drugs at this time. We are hopeful that in the future, she will be eligible for one of these life changing medications. There is a lot of research being done right now and much more in the years to come. Thank you for donating any small amount to our Great Strides team which will go towards finding a cure for CF!
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.
