Welcome to my personal page on Team Wise.
As you may know, I was the Development Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Central NY Chapter. In my three years of working for the CF Foundation I become incredibly invested in the lives of those living with CF in Central NY, getting to know many families personally who are affected by CF. Because of this connection, These families and teams have completely changed my life and I will never stop fighting until they all have a CURE.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
The CF Foundation is the worlds leader in the search for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and nearly every CF specific drug available today was made possible because of the CF Foundation. The CF Foundation supports research to discover and develop new CF treatments and maintains a pipeline of potential therapies that target the disease from every angle.
In 2015, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the second drug to treat the root cause of cystic fibrosis, a defective protein known as CFTR. The first drug targeting the basic genetic defect in CF was approved in 2012. The arrival of this group of drugs, called CFTR modulators, signals a historic breakthrough in how CF is treated. It's expected that CFTR modulators could add decades of life for some people with CF.
Today, the Foundation is focused on developing lifesaving new therapies for larger numbers of people with CF and pursuing daring, new opportunities to one day develop a lifelong cure.
All this was made possible by individuals like you. YES YOU who is reading this sentence right now. The CF Foundation recieves no goverment funding. It is all made possible by people like you and it's people like you that will help us find a cure.
