At two weeks old, Madelynn was diasgnosed with cystic fibrosis. It's been over 7 years of medicines, thousands of hours of airway clearance, and 2 two week hospital stays...
This little girl has not had an easy life, but it is not stopping her from making a change and we are behind her in finding a cure for CF.
People with CF have more mucus buildup which harbors bacteria in their lungs, causing infections and difficulty breathing. Cf also affects the pancreas, which hinders nutrient absorption and affects the gastrointestinal tract. The median life span is up to 40 years old but with research and development we are hoping to have the number increased and for CF to stand 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 and hope you will support us in our efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join us? Support us by making a donation to our Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
