As most of our friends know, our daughter Emily was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Now at 5, Emily is beginning to understand her CF limitations and the importance of twice a day treatments but also will not allow it to control who she is or limit what she does. Whether at gymnastics, on the soccer field, or on the trampoline with her two sisters....NOTHING holds her back and when we ask her about her CF, she responds "So What." To see that determination and commitment every day from Emily and her fellow CFers is remarkable and must be looked at as an inspiration. Her strength and perseverance drives our family Every Day!
On May 19th we will be walking to help add tomorrows for Emily and all the others CFers that are fighting every day to breath. Please join Emily and our family in this fight, we will not stop until CF stands for Cure Found! We look forward to celebrating with our friends and family with a BBQ after the walk.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
