My Great Strides Story
My grandson Elijah has cystic fibrosis. He was diagnosed with it when he was less than a month old. Scary? Yes but God has a plan for this child and our family. Each day is a blessing that we're all thankful to enjoy. We pray for a cure so Elijah can live a long healthy life.
If you're able to join us with a donation, it will be greatly appreciated. Please pray for all those living with this disease that someday it can be cured. Thank you!
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. I walk for them.
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. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
