My Great Strides Story
Cystic fibrosis is 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.
I am taking part in the Lehigh Valley Great Strides event in Philadelphia on the 29th of April but before I go on the 14th of April, I am going to step it up even more and challenge myself to walk 65,000 steps in one day.
As someone with this disease, I know how much your donations will help so many people and families affected by this disease.
You can support me!
