First, let me tell you how my journey with this incredible cause started. I have been friends with Nicole Wiza since Junior High. Her family has become like my own, and has welcomed me into their lives and homes throughout the years. As I became pregnant with my second child, I soon found out that Nicole's sister Jenna and her husband Scott, was pregnant with their first.
Luke has become best buds with my nephew Ash. They have developed a friendship through school, sports, and different camps. I want everything for Luke that my nephews and daughters can have.
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. By supporting my fundraising efforts, you have an opportunity in your lifetime to be part of ending this disease. Please consider joining us and help make medical history.
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is over 50. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
