Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF. My wife was diagnosed with CF when she was 13 and it is something that she deals with everyday. A year ago, we met Noah who is the same age as my daughter. He was diagnosed with CF at birth, but is a shining example of how far treatments have come. In the time between my wife’s diagnosis and Noah’s. there have been numerous new treatments which have increased the life expectancy for those with CF.
This year, I'm walking in the Great Strides walk at 2013 Columbia - Saluda Shoals, Riverbirch Shelter on 05/18/2013. Please help me meet my fundraising goal of $200.00 by sponsoring me. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively: approximately 90 cents of every dollar of revenue goes to support vital CF programs.
If you would like to donate, you can do so here. Every little bit helps.
