My Xtreme Hike Story

My Hike Story

As many of you know, my son, Evan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as an infant.  New treatments made possible with the help and research provided by the CF Foundation are helping many CF patients, but for many, including Evan, we are still eagerly awaiting new breakthroughs. These can only be made with funds raised to help research new treatments to help everyone living with CF live their best lives.  With the help of charities like the CF foundation, kids and adults are now living longer and healthier lives than ever before, but we still have a lot of work to do!   

There is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis. By participating in Xtreme Hike, I am helping to end this disease for thousands of people impacted by CF.

Cystic fibrosis affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. The symptoms can vary from person to person, and as people with CF live longer than ever before, their disease can become more complicated, leading to serious health issues. 

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made extraordinary progress — including fostering the development of more than a dozen CF treatments — but these treatments are not a cure and not everyone can benefit from them. We must keep going.

Your support makes a difference.

By donating to my fundraising goal, you will help advance our mission for a cure for all. Please consider joining us and helping make CF stand for Cure Found.
