Dear friends and family - I lost my sister Lisa Rae Meyers to CF at the age of 15 years old. That is a life cut way too short and we are still losing children and adults to this disease. The CF Foundation's innovative research has more than doubled the life expectency from when Lisa passed away.
New drug protocols and treatments are helping CF patients live better lives ... but until each parent can say "my CF child will outlive me" and until CF stands for "Cure Found" I am asking for your help and support.
And thank you CFF because of your research advancments I knew I was not a carrier of the CF gene when I was ready to start my own family.
There are approximately 10 million carriers of the CF gene and 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
