My Great Strides Story
Hi! I'm Luna!
My parents were shocked to discover I had CF just before my second birthday when they learned we had been given some incorrect test results at my birth. As of right now, there is no cure for CF and we need your help to find one! My parents and I are participating in the Great Strides walk and raising as much money as we can to go toward finding a cure!
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them.
Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
