My Great Strides Story
I've been lucky to call Allison my friend since the summer of 1996, when she rang my doorbell to welcome my family to the neighborhood. In the 27 years since, we've shared countless memories and milestones.
Although I can't be there in person, I'm fundraising for Great Strides to support Allison, who's living with cystic fibrosis.
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan.
Over the years, I've seen the huge impact the CF Foundation has made in Allison's life. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. But we're still fighting for a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis.
You can support me!
