For those of you who may not be familiar with Great Strides, it is an annual fund raiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. CFF is one of the most important tools in funding a cure for cystic fibrosis. The foundation is the one behind the controller drug, Kalydeco. This medicine is a game changer for some of those living with cystic fibrosis. It has opened doors for the rest of us as well with new clinical trials going on that, if successful, would benefit about 90% of us with the disease! (This includes me!)
Please consider making a donation to help us reach a cure. Help us add tomorrows for not only me but for the 30,000 Americans and 70,000 people worldwide living with this disease. Already, there have been leaps and bounds made in the life expectancy for cystic fibrosis patients, but it would be even better if our life expectancy was no different than anyone else.
Don't worry about your donation being too small! There is no such thing! Every little bit of money makes a huge difference, because it all adds up. If you would like to make a contribution, just click on the link below and follow the instructions. It's very easy, and it's all tax deductible! :)
