If you're reading this, you probably know my story...I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 21 after my 30 year old sister and 31 year old brother were diagnosed. I didn't know there was anything wrong with me at the time, but because CF is genetic, and I had most of the symptoms, I was given a sweat test and tested positive for CF.
The evolution of the treatments for CF has been extraordinary over these past 32 years. I have benefitted greatly from all the research done over the years because of funding from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The new treatments they have uncovered are the reason I am still doing so well. In fact, the modulator, Trikafta, that I currently take has helped so much that I hardly feel like there's anything wrong with me anymore. I'm super fortunate to have access to that!
If you are able to donate, I would appreciate it. There are over 30,000 others with CF in the United States who would appreciate it as well.
