James was born in August 2017 and was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at two weeks old. He is seen every three months at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cystic Fibrosis Clinic and has chest physical therapy vest treatments done twice a day, everyday. James is now almost 6 years old and has been doing phenomenal. He started a new medication, Kalydeco, that will significantly help improve his quality of life. As James gets older he will require different medications and equipment. Because of this, James will directly benefit from the continued success of the research. With the amazing research the CF Foundation is doing, we hope to see a cure for cystic fibrosis in James' lifetime.
Our team is driven by a dream that one day, every person with cystic fibrosis will have the chance to live a long, healthy life. You can help us reach that goal!
