As you all know, my research group (The Center for Nanomedicine, http://cnm-hopkins.org/) develops nanomedicines for treatment of various diseases, including gene therapies for cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. The CNM has been funded for many years by the CF Foundation to perform our research, so each year, we raise additional money for CF research as part of the Great Strides Walk! Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF.
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.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
