Tobias' Story (IG:@cfteamtobias)
October 26, 2016 He was born.
November 3, 2016 He was diagnosed based on the Meconium Ileus that landed him in surgery along with a NICU stay AND a Positive Newborn screen.
He has had a NICU hospitalization, 4 surgeries, Flu hospitalization, IV Antibiotics hospitalization, ER Visits, multiple CF Clinic and pediatric visits. He has caught all the sickness, viruses and such that little babies can. He has Class 1 mutations Cystic Fibrosis which has manifested not only in his GI System but also his respiratory system. Today, at 3 years old, he battles malabsorption issues, sinus disease and respiratory-mucus build up issues associated with the disease. He walks, runs, smiles, cries, plays, dances and loves. He watches Puppy Dog Pals faithfully.
We want a cure to be found in his lifetime. Please walk with us to raise awareness and donate to find a cure. This is our fourth year walking. #WhyIStride4Tobias #dauntlessnevergiveup
Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
