My Great Strides Story
Sydney was born in April of 2021 with CF. She has not only dealt with all that has come with this disease, but she is thriving! Without the help and support of the CF foundation we as a family would be lost. They have allowed us as a family to learn, care for, and deal with CF. We are fortunate to have not only the CF foundation in our corner, but the unwavering support of friends and family that constantly put Sydney’s life and health ahead of so many things in their lives. What we have realized is that being on the receiving end of these benefits for our strong, brave girl is only part of the story. The kindness of every donor helps everyone living with cystic fibrosis have that much more of a chance to overcome It than they did the day before.
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.
