10 years ago, my older brother, Jason, lost his fight with cystic fibrosis. When I would talk about it then, no one I spoke to about it really knew what CF was. Since then CF awareness has increased so much and more people are learning about it and working to fight it. 2019 was a great year for cystic fibrosis research, but there a long way to go to cure this awful disease. So this year I am walking again in Jason's memory in the hopes to help other families not have to go through what my family went through.
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 them. 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.
Please support me!
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
