Ben was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was just a few weeks old. Although he has faced struggles his first few years of life, in 2017 he was able to start taking a drug called Kalydeco. This drug helps his cells function closer to normal and hopefully minimzie the impact that CF will have on his body. The CF Foundation helped fund the development of this drug. They have also helped fund the development of even better drugs yet to be approved for his age range as well as other therapies that are critical to expanding the length and quality of life for CF patients. Your donations and the hard work of volunteers has been the key to all of the progress made so far towards finding a cure and it will be needed until a cure is found!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people 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.
