For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
I walk for Liana and all others living with CF. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short.
By walking with me in Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
This is Liana’s story. She was diagnosed with CF at 6 weeks of age. John and I had no idea that we were carriers so this came as a complete shock. We struggled for a very long time. Myself especially. It was so overwhelming learning about all the medications and treatments. She is now 9 years old. I still struggle with the fact that my baby may be taken from me by this disease. We try to live our lives as normally as possible and she is amazing. She is a true fighter, she doesn’t let her disease get the best of her. She talks and asks questions about the cure and is positive that one day she’ll get it.
