When I started at the Foundation 13 years ago, the life expectancy of someone with cf was in the mid-20's. Recently, the life expectancy was increased to over 50 years of age! This is thanks to CF Foundation-funded drugs and therapies that are allowing people living with cf to have longer, more fulfilling lives.
However, these amazing drugs and therapies are not a cure and not everyone can take them. Many people with cf whom I love are still waiting for their miracle drug. As I do every year, I walk in honor of everyone with cf. I also walk in memory of Paul, Mitch, Leann, Shannon, Lea, Danny, and all of those for whom this important breakthrough did not come soon enough.
Will you join me in fighting CF by making a donation to my Great Strides efforts?
