Our team is driven by a dream that one day, every person with cystic fibrosis will have the chance to live a long, healthy life. You can help us reach that goal!
Our Great Strides Story
Domenic was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was two weeks old. Cystic fibrosis is a life threatening, genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. It affects about 40,000 children and adults in the United States. Thankfully, Domenic has been relatively healthy. His team of doctors at Quincy Pediatrics, Tufts Hospital for Children, and most recently Mass General Hospital, supply Domenic with quality care and preventative medications. These treatments help keep Domenic as healthy as he is. Domenic will celebrate his 16th birthday on May 3rd!
We created Dommie's Dream Team in 2009 and have participated in the Great Strides Walk to help raise funds to find a cure of CF! All members of team have donated and raised funds to reach our goals. Dommie's Dream Team has raised over $150,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause and together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found.
