Cystic fibrosis used to be known as a pediatric disease. 1n the 1950s, children with CF often died before they could attend elementary school. Thanks to donors, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been able to fund research and advancements in care during the past 65 years that have helped people with CF extend their lives. Today, people with CF are now living into their 40s, 50s, and beyond.
For that reason, CF is known as one of the greatest success stories in medicine. But our work is not done. Although current treatments will improve symptoms, they are not a cure, and there are still those with certain mutations who can't take available drugs. The lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. Please help me fundraise for our Great Strides Walk on May 4. Great Strides raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Your gift will help improve the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible. Thank you!
