For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
My son, Anver was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at ten days old, but our family is determined to help him live the life he deserves despite having CF. Our vibrant boy is happy, healthy, and thriving, but unfortunately that won't always be the case, and there are so many with CF currently fighting a battle more difficult than most of us will ever know. We walk not only for Anver, but for all of those fighting the CF fight, and those to come after them.
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short.
By walking with me in Great Strides, you can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Please support me!
Your participation will help us get one step closer to ending this terrible disease. Let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
