Our son Nate was born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease that causes damage to his lungs and digestive system. He needs medications and breathing treatments multiple times a day to help prevent damage to his body and to stay healthy! Nate manages all of this, plus extra doctor appointments, with a smile and a great attitude. We are so proud of him!
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has launched a Path to a Cure - devoting $500 million dollars through 2025 into a finding a treatment for every person living with CF and finding a cure. Nate has benefited a lot from the CF Foundation already, with the research and quick FDA approval of a groundbreaking medication called Kalydeco. We feel so lucky, but sadly it is not a cure, and we still desperately need one!
