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!!!
My brother and I made this video showing my daily CF life at...
Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
