Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Cystic Fibrosis, a rare genetic disorder that makes breathing difficult and causes complications with other organs, is taking the lives of too many. My dad is a 54 year old CF patient who is kicking CF's butt! But there are more than 70,000 people in the world with CF who are still suffering. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation raises awareness and funds medical research to provide more and more CF patients with longevity and a better quality of life. They have made significant progress, but there is still more to discover. My family has benefited from the work of the CF Foundation, and we want others to benefit as well!
Come join us on a walk with Great Strides to raise money for more research. If you can't make it, feel free to donate! Your help would allow more CF patients to lead a longer and more enjoyable life.
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let's make CF stand for Cure Found!
PS: Medela is latin for healing! Join TEAM MEDELA to help find a cure!
