Join Team Ella and help add tomorrows to her life and the lives of other heroes who have cystic fibrosis!
Ella was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 3 weeks old and we had the great fortune of being able to start her on a modulator a little after her first birthday. This dramatically improved her life and that wouldn't have been possible without tireless efforts and years of contributions. With the introduction of Trikafta and the ability to provide modulators to so much of the CF population, we're at a turning point in the fight against this disease. We cannot forget those who have mutations that don't qualify for these new medications and we can't lose sight of the fact that modulators are not a cure. They improve quality of life but don't erase the struggle, and they don't stop the progression of the disease.
Please, pleasecontinue to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation until we can all say CF stands for Cure Found!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation and start fundraising.
