Our Great Strides Story
Caelynn is an amazing 8 year old who loves biking, gymnastics, and art! Caelynn’s favorite artist is Frida Kahlo because she connects with her time spent doing art while in bed when she was ill. Caelynn also has Cystic Fibrosis. She takes pills before each meal to eat, does her breathing treatments twice a day (everyday), along with other medications. Caelynn is a great advocate for herself and has become very confident in educating others about CF in the past year. I am so proud of who Caelynn is becoming and thankful for our amazing friends and family who join us as Caelynn’s Crusaders!
Here is more about Cystic Fibrosis:
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them.
Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
