Hi! My name is Nahomy Morales (pronounced naomi) . I am 25years old and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of two months old . It was not easy growing up with a chronic illness but i have not let that bring me down nor will i ever . Although CF stands for Cystic Fibrosis , our goal is to have CF stand for Cure Found someday believe it or not , we are getting closer and closer for a cure . Ever since i started the new Trikafta drug late November of 2019 , i have NOT been coughing , I've been more active , have so much energy (more than I've already had lol) and i feel like i can plan my future without fears of what ifs . My lungs have also went from the low 60% range to now 80% range which I have never been in that percentage since I was a teenager and that's all thanks to the CF Foundation for working day and night to find new possibilities on treatments , medications , etc .
Due to COVID , there has been a lot of changes everywhere around us , especially in our CF lives . We are at much higher risk then ever but we don't want to let that stop us from still doing our part in the CF community. Our walkathon is virtual this year but we are still going to do our best to make it the best experience ever from home . I have high goals for this year . In 2019 , i was thankful to have had the support of many and fundraiser $1,000.00 . Well this year , i want to beat that and see if we can hit $2,000.00 . Can you guys help ? Please don't feel obligated since I do know that it has been rough during this pandemic but just know every dollar counts ! The walkathon will be in Walnut Creek on May 15th . You are more than welcomed to sign up and join my team ! Just click the link below . You can either sign up and create your own goal to fundraise or simply donate without joining . Again , every dollar counts ! Please and thank you in advance
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We've come so far, but there's still so much work to do. I will not stop striding until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. Will you join me? Please consider donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Please support me!
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
