We have been very blessed this year with Madison’s health! The new medication Madison has been taking has been life changing. The research and trials for this medication was funded by the CF Foundation!! I am so excited for what's in the pipeline and what the future holds for Madison and other kiddos with CF!! We are committed to making CF stand for "Cure Found" instead of "Cystic Fibrosis"!! In doing so, we are participating in GREAT STRIDES again this year and hope you join us as well!!
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. For those that may not be familiar, Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects children and young adults. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Too many young lives depend on this vital research to let it go un-funded! For our Madison, this is extremely important! The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. As a parent of a child with CF, THIS IS OUR DREAM! Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
