Wishing we could be in Colorado with @ladylucaslive for the Denver CF Climb. Emily is a true warrior, a role model to our daughter, Julianna. She has- and continues- to have a positive impact on our lives.
Cystic fibrosis is a rare, life-shortening, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S., which causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breath over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers – all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives.
Sixty years ago, most children with cystic fibrosis did not live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to Foundation-based research and care, many people with CF are now living into their forties – achieving milestones once thought not possible, such as attending college, pursuing careers, and having a family of their own. Five years ago, Emily lost her sister to CF. With your support, CF will one day mean Cure Found. 🙏🏽 #cysticfibrosis #CF #cfclimb #denver #colorado
