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.
My best friend and CF Warrior, Jessica Makris, lost her battle to this disease in May of 2017. I walk not just in honor of her, but for her brother still fighting his fight, for her incredible parents, Judy and Paul, who continue to share Jessie's Path, and for the friends and family who are there through each hospital visit, reoccurring setbacks, and celebratory milestones. 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 incredible lives are cut far too short.
By walking with me in Great Strides or donating money, 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. @---}---}---
