Welcome :) My name is Madison (Madi) Lam, and I am the proud team leader of "sLAM dunks." We are so excited to return for our second year as a team, and I cannot wait to see all we will accomplish.
I stride for my cousin Tyler and my good friend Shayna, who are both CF fighters. I have grown up understanding CF and seeing the consequences of not having a cure for it.
While there have been several incredible advancements in recent years in terms of treatments, they are simply that: ADVANCEMENTS. They are not cures, and they cannot even be used by every CF fighter. Every CF fighter deserves to be seen, validated, heard, and helped. It is our responsibility to ensure that nobody is left behind under the false assumption that new treatements are "cures" or even that they are universal.
I began working with Great Strides and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation because I wanted to DO something more. I want to be on the front lines of this battle, and I want to see progress continue to be made.
If you are seeing this page, I have a feeling that you want to see this progress too. YOU can be a part of the change for the Cystic Fibrosis community, and I am so happy that you are here.
Will you join us?
