Luna is an energetic five-year-old who has the sweetest personality and smile. She loves baking, dancing, singing, and reading books. She is so smart! She loves to learn and has the best memory. The Little Mermaid, Elsa, and Blippi are just some of her favorite friends. She loves spending time with her sister, Evie.
Luna was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis nine days after she was born, after receiving her newborn screen results. We had no idea what CF was and what was to come of her future. Luna started taking medication immediately to help her improve the absorption of vital nutrients and started chest physiotherapy to break up mucus in her lungs. Along with those treatments, she now takes an CFTR modulator (medicine that targets the underlying defect in CFTR protein) and an inhaled medicine to thin the mucus. Today, this is her "normal." Although she takes every new challenge in stride, we wish this wasn't her normal. While we're so grateful for her good health today, we still need to find a cure for CF. That's where we need your help! The CF Foundation relies on private donations to keep research and clinical trials flowing. It also offers community support which is needed between CF families. Because of your donations, Luna is able to play like a five-year-old should and live her life to the fullest!!
