There’s no doubt that this little man is the strongest most resilient baby we know. The CF community has become new to us over the last year but it doesn’t stop us. We want to raise awareness about this silent disease and we’re not going to stop until CF stands for CURE FOUND!
Cole was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis after birth through his newborn screening at the hospital. We had no idea that we were carriers so it was a big shock to our family. Since then he has become accustomed to daily nebulizer treatments, chest physiotherapy and takes his enzymes like a champ before he eats. There’s no way he will let this silent disease overcome him and he’s going to continue to fight like a champ! CF doesn’t define him- it’s just a part of his life. We are so thankful for everyone’s continued support and can’t thank everyone enough!
Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
