I had heard of Cystic Fibrosis as a kid because a neighbor. But in 2010 I was totally smacked in the face with what Cystic Fibrosis truly was and how it effects not only patients, but the families and caregivers. My best friend was given horrible news that her newborn in fact was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Since then we have joined the fight for research, programs, etc. Do you know how much some of the medications cost a months? THOUSANDS... The dollars you contribute not only goes for research, but also resources for families to get assistance with so many programs. Maeghan has had the honor and privilege to travel to DC to meet with important representatives, Senators and committees to push the CF Foundations message and get those grassroots programs heard. I know 2020 and 2021 have been hard years, but if you can find it in your hearts and wallets to donate to keep this mission going, I would be so appreciative.
This year there will be no walk for obvious reasons, but we need to continue to push financial growth and support to this great organization.
