Hi, I'm Connor. I am 14 years old and have Cystic Fibrosis (CF). I love reading, playing basketball, puzzles, video games, math, science, hiking, playing with my brother and sister, and I also LOVE anything to do with STAR WARS!!!
Looking at me, you would never know that I have a fatal illness. You wouldn't know that everyday I take at least 19 pills, numerous inhalers and nose sprays, and that I spend 2 hours a day doing 5 to 7 breathing treatment medicines and two vest treatments that help break up the mucus in my lungs. That's just on my healthy days. All that stuff doubles when I'm sick.
Science is so close to a cure but not there yet. Please give a donation and help make CF stand for "Cure Found." Help make this cure come fast enough to get my lungs healthy and help me become and do anything I want in my future. Thank you!!!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
