Cystic Fibrosis is an incurable disease....so far! We are fighting with so many others for better treatments and medicines, and of course... a CURE! The day is getting closer. Our family got involved with this foundation and Great Strides when Jenna Rae was diagnosed 8 years ago. Our family, like so many others, fight together! No one fights this battle alone. Jenna's life was changed forever when she was diagnosed, as was everyones who loves her. The time spent doing everything she has to do for her health is overwhelming. I tell her all the time she is my hero and we won't stop the fight until a cure is found!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
