Miracles do happen...
This fall a miracle has been occurring across the country for thousands of people with CF. People with cystic fibrosis have been receiving a drug that will change their future, improve quality of life, and add YEARS. This drug represents what people have been praying for. Our family celebrates with our community because this drug is life changing. But...
We are still praying because this drug only helps 90% of our community and even for them, it is not a cure. Austin is not a part of that 90%. His miracle is out there awaiting discovery.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and our community is committed to a #cureforall 100%. But as a mom, I am still afraid for Austin. At times, I feel that we have been left behind. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for him to process this. He never complains. He never seems jealous. He makes us so proud.
We need a CURE for everyone with cystic fibrosis, regardless of their mutation or disease progression. We need a miracle for all.
So, we will continue to fight, fundraise and shout from the rooftops until #cureforall. And we will continue to ask you to join us, support us, and share the most exciting story in medicine. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is changing lives thanks to the generosity of people like you. You have helped fund the science that has brought this miracle. Will you continue to help fund the cure?

Our sincerest thank you - to all of you! Without you, there would be no hope.
The last line could not ring more true. We have hope because we know the that all of you will continue to stand with us and help fund the science that will one day lead to Cure Found. We would be lost without this hope, and lost without all of you.
Beyond thank you,
Steve, Laura, Austin and Kate
