Zac was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at 6 months of age. We were told he may not live past Elementary age or even past his first birthday. By the Grace of God he will be 21 years old on May 3rd. We have been very blessed, yet each day is a struggle for Zac and many others living with CF. He also has CF related Diabetes, Asthma, Vitamin K and D deficiency. In CF, thick mucus builds up in the lungs and chest causing respiratory problems.
Donations to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation are used for research in hopes of finding a cure. The donations also help to develop new treatments and medications, which help extend the lives of those living with CF.
Please help find a cure for Zac and those living with CF by making a donation that is 100% tax deductible.
With every passing day I pray for healing and that a cure will be found.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please lend a helping hand today and make a donation!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
