My Great Strides Story
Many people are unaware but on 10-12-18, just 2 days after giving birth to my beautiful son Benicio, I received news that would change my life forever. I was told that my son was born with a genetic condition called Cystic Fibrosis. My heart broke into a million pieces. In an effort to mend those pieces and become a stronger support system for my son, I became involved in the fight to help raise awareness. Please join me in the fight whether it's a like, a share, or donation nothing is to small!
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.
