My daughter Katie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis 17 years ago. In spite of having CF, she's happy and healthy and you'd never know it looking at her. Thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and their investment in research, she is now taking one of the first genetic meds in existence and the results have been amazing. She has never been healthier but maintaining her health is still very demanding and involves taking dozens of pills and doing breathing treatments every day. The upside is that she hasn't been hospitalized or had an infection in over 2 years.
She's one of the lucky ones for whom these medications work but there are still many who need different treatment options and there is still a lot that can be done to reduce the other medications and treatments that are needed.
My family has participated in Great Strides for 17 years and in that time we've raised nearly $40,000 through the generosity of people like you. Please consider donating to Great Strides to help add more tomorrows to the lives of everyone living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
