Because of the efforts of the CFF, there is now medication to treat the underlying cause of CF for those with her genetic defect, but this treatment is not without a cost (side effects, medication interactions & financial)! We have learned of so much that scientists are doing combining this drug with others, as well as trying completely different approaches. THE CF FOUNDATION FUNDS MOST OF THIS RESEARCH. There is no federal government funding for CF, so your donation makes all of this possible.
May 21 is the Great Strides walk, which is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families - our “Comeback tour” after years of virtual. If we don't see you there, please consider making a donation to our team. Our girl needs a better deal!
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
Many thanks!! Love, Susan, Tim, Cal & Eva Attel
