As you may have heard, 2020 has been quite a year. With all the concerns in the world, our family has great reason for hope. A drug called Trikafta, which has shown great promise to improve the health of those with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), is available to patients 12 and over and is in drug trials for those age 6-11. This combination of drugs has shown a double digit increase in lung function with decreased lung issues for those on the drug! We are excited for the future and increase in quality of life for Beckett and others fighting CF.
Beckett is a healthy fifth-grader with a joy for life, friends, and video games that is hard to match. While we continue to work hard to maintain his health with daily treatments, medications, and doctor visits, we know that a cure is out there for Beckett and all those with CF.
Beckett’s quality of life would not be possible without the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. From creating the framework for a network of care centers that supports those with CF to funding groundbreaking research, the Foundation has established standards of care and treatment that make living with CF a reality.
With all the advances in care for those with CF, there is still much to do. We will not rest until we have a cure! Join us in supporting an organization that provides hope to so many families and individuals with CF. Join us in supporting a foundation that continues to show its value time and again.
Please consider joining Team Beckett and asking those around you to sponsor our Team. We love our donors, they make so many awesome things happen; but we are ecstatic about our teammates! We are asking our team to ask just two friends or family members to donate to the cause. Just think, you could tell our story to that strange uncle and a good friend and you could be an official member of Team Beckett!
Lastly, consider a 100-percent tax deductible donation to Team Beckett to help us find a cure. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation uses these funds efficiently, with 90 cents of every dollar going directly to research and improving lives.
Thank you for your support!
Brian, Alyssa, and Beckett Smith
