John William Buffone joined our family on Friday April 19th, 2019. The following Friday we received a call that changed our family’s path and has since given us a new appreciation for modern medicine and research.
JW was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. We are so grateful for our care team in Atlanta and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Generous donations that fund research and medical development have improved the lives of those living with CF and give hope that healthy, long lives are possible.
By donating and walking with us in Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community. Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people living with CF.
Your participation and support will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Please join us in making CF stand for Cure Found!
Jeremy, Katie and JW Buffone
