It has been almost 10 years since Tyler was first diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Tyler is now 17 years old and just about to complete 11th grade. He continues to love working out, fishing, boating, and of course like most boys his age, playing video games. He has a very busy schedule which must also include taking approximately 18 pills a day as well as 40 minutes of airway clearance. Tyler has been very fortunate to have stayed healthy through the pandemic. We continue to attribute his good health to the Florida climate, which continues to provide year round opportunities for Tyler to enjoy fresh air while being active and staying healthy, and his adherence to his daily treatments.
Tyler continues to take Trikafta, which he began taking in November of 2019 with great results. This medication treats the underlying cause of CF for 90% of CF patients. Unfortunately it is still not a cure, nor does it address all CF patients. So we will continue to raise funds for the CF Foundation to help CF stand for Cure Found. This is why we continue to ask for your support, prayers, and donations. 90 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly to research, and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Any amount (big or small) is GREATLY appreciated and will go a long way in helping the CF Foundation with their mission to find a cure for all of those who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis.
Thank you for your continued support!
