My Great Strides Story
At a young age Cinthia "Cindy" was faced with this disease and many challenges, as the years passed by she was always aware of her situation but never made it an excuse for pity or to be treated differently she always stood as strong as can be. She never gave up, her motto was if I can do it "sick" anyone can.
All her life she was put in situations that no one at such young age should have been faced with, But that didn't stop her she continued to live her life as best as she could and pushed through her pain with a big smile, love and just being herself. She was a true warrior.
Educational note: 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.
