Our Xtreme Hike Story
My wife and I will be participating in the Xtreme hike on June 4th for our Son Lucas who is living with Cystic Fibrosis. Lucas is 9 Years old, he was born on April 2, 2013 and was diagnosed at Birth with the double Delta F508 mutation of CF, which is considered to be the most severe and most common strand known. Lucas is an amazing kind with a huge heart please help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We hike for them.
Will you join us?
Xtreme Hike is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
