There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis (CF), including my own beautiful 6-year-old granddaughter, Reis Kirkpatrick.
I am thrilled at what the Foundation has done to advance research and treatment for CF. Reis has been taking a medication developed by that research since age 2, and has been thriving, giving the whole family increased confidence for her future. But this medication doesn't work for all CF patients, nor is it a cure. So continued research is very important.
I am hopeful that continued efforts will lead to the day that "CF" means "Cure Found." Meanwhile, the Foundation provides significant support for those with cystic fibrosis and their families, so your support makes a real difference in the lives of so many people. Gifts of any size are very welcome.
Please help Team Reis reach its fundraising goal to the Great Strides fundraising campaign!
