I have had the priveldge of working for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for 22 years. In that time we have made incredible progress in treating the symptoms of the disease and keeping people with CF living longer and healthier lives. Even more recently, we have made incredible progress in treating the underlying cause of the disease providing an effective treatment for over 90% of the CF population. However, we are not done.
We have our sights set on a cure.
Imaginge, in our lifetimes, we could cure this disease.
It IS possible if we continue to be dilegent. Bringing just one drug to the marketplace to treat a disease takes over a billion dollars. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has invested many billions of dollars in treatments and patient care programs over the past 60 years. We are committed to investing billions more.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for all of them.
Please consider supporting my fundraising efforts.
