There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis (CF), 1 of whom is my sweet granddaughter Frankie. Thanks to the medical advances funded by the CF Foundation, she is doing well. But even with the hours we spend each day to keep her healthy, her lungs will eventually succumb to infection and disease...unless we find a cure.
Great Strides is a national event aimed at raising awareness and support for those with CF and their families. 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 today, I am helping to add tomorrows for those with CF, including my grabddaughter Frankie, my niece Kaitlyn, and my son-in-law Michael (who has a mild form of the disease). Will you join me?
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Your gift will help save the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
