Madeline & Brianna are about 15 months apart and have always loved being together. Now that we live four hours away, visits are few and far between. When an illness as simple as a cold or a lingering cough prevents them from getting together, they are heartbroken. Thanks to donors like you, research has brought a medication for Brianna's mutation available for children her age. Brianna was able to start Orkambi this year. It is the first drug for her mutation that treats the underlying cause of CF, not just the symptoms. 10 years ago this type of medication was a pipe dream. There is a better drug out there for people 12 years and older and an even BETTER drug in phase 3 clinical trials.
Participating in this walk is one way for us to support Brianna and her family as they strive to make CF stand for Cure Found! Please consider a donation, EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR COUNTS!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
