Join our team or donate and add many more tomorrows for many CF people and our Clay! If you can't join us for the walk a donation would be greatly appreciated and any amount is welcome. If these two things are not possible your prayers are a wonderful blessing. You all have heard me speak of the drug Orkambi which Clay was on for 2 years, in the last year he was struggling with chest tightness, he had to go off of this drug for awhile but then he told his doctor he just had to get back on it, so he went back on it the chest tightness subsided somewhat and he was able to stay on it until the new drug Symdeko was approved. Clay is currently on this med which is an improvement over Orkambi (it was designed because so many had unbearable chest tightness). At the current time he can't be on it full time because he is on a medication that it interacts with, so he is on a reduced dosage and guess what on the reduced dosage his lung functions went up. Hoping this month he will go on full dosage and I can't wait to see the results. This is still not a cure~ There are several more of these types drugs in the pipeline one is currently being tested and it is way better than the one Clay is on although we are greatful for just having something our wish is for a cure. In baseball terms, Symdeko is like getting a runner to 1st ~ 2nd base and we'd like a Grand Slam! (There is a clinical trial getting ready to start we are trying to get Clay into it and it is an extremly promising drug). Your donations are the reason all these new meds are adding many tomorrows for Clay and others. Our family is so greatful for your generousity.

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.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and wellbeing of the CF community, those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to join us in-person for the event. If you are not fully vaccinated, we invite you to participate virtually if that option exists.
We do not plan to ask for you to provide proof of vaccination. We are, however, counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID and will abide by this requirement.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, have been fully vaccinated.
