Xander is an energetic fun loving two-and-a-half-year-old living with Cystic Fibrosis. Although he doesn't quite understand what it means to be living with Cystic Fibrosis yet, the treatments and medications he has on a daily basis are just his normal he has grown accustomed to.
Xander and his family have been fortunate from the years of donations and research breakthroughs in CF medication and therapies to allow Xander to stay as healthy as possible in these first few years of life before his families CF story even began. We are hopeful through continued research and support Xander will live a full and happy life! We are walking for Xander but beyond that we are also walking for all the other CF individuals and families affected by the disease.
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.
