Guess who just graduated Cum Laude from Washington and Lee University! Casey has proven himself to be an amazingly strong, smart, and resilient person who refuses to let his daily struggle with CF get him down. The consistent help and support from friends and family has helped him stay his course. But we are not done yet!
Over 90% of CF patients now benefit from an oral medication that treats the disease so well that their symptoms are minimized, and they do not require an intense daily routine. Casey is not eligible to take these miracle drugs. His CF is caused by what are termed rare or nonsense CF genetic mutations. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for all CF patients and is now focusing in on rare and nonsense mutations. Their motto is "until it's done". Research and clinical trials are currently underway not only to develop medications to treat CF symptoms for these patients but also for a true cure, an end to CF, for all patients. Both of these goals are within reach.
This science costs money and that is where we need your help. Please consider making a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help Casey and all of the others afflicted with this horrible disease. We are committed to raise as much money as possible to make CF stand for CURE FOUND!
