My mother lost her battle to cystic fibrosis on September 28th, 2013. While she may not be suffering anymore, there are still moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who are struggling everyday to beat this disease. In my mom’s memory, and in their honor, my family and I have formed Team Donna to join the CF foundation in the fight against CF.
The mission of the CF Foundation is to cure CF and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development. The CF foundation has made tremendous progress in treatments and everyday therapies. Thanks to this work, the life expectancy of someone born with CF has almost doubled in the last 30 years! There has been a development of more than a dozen CF treatments. Including the latest treatment; Tikafta- the first triple combination therapy available to treat patients with the most common CF mutation.
While there is still no cure, this proves that real progress has been made in search for a cure, and we have each of YOU to thank you for it. Your past and future donations help us make these strides and reach the goal of FINDING A CURE!
My mother’s compassion and love touched the lives around her, I know she would be so proud of how many lives we have touched through the CF foundation.
So today, we ask you to help continue to drive awareness and support for the CF Foundation. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
