Mercer County & Grove City Resident, Jamie Gildersleeve, has recently been named as one of 'Pittsburgh's Fifty Finest.' In accepting this honor, Jamie is excited for the opportunity to support & raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
100% of the donations will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, ensuring there is funding for continued medical research enabling the development of additional genetic therapies and patient care offerings, so very much needed by the CF community.
What Is CF?
Cystic fibrosis is primarily a lung disease caused by a defective gene that makes the body produce thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening infections. This mucus also obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. People with CF can literally starve to death if they don’t take supplemental pancreatic enzymes.
About 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year, with more than 70% of patients diagnosed by age two. CF patients are living into their 30’s, 40’s and beyond. Ten million people in the U.S. – or one in 30 – carry the defective CF gene.
Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people with CF are still cut far too short. We need people like you to support our mission and help extend the lives of those with the disease.
Together, let's make CF stand for CURE FOUND.
