I recently had the opportunity to attend a meeting and heard Bruce Marshall, the VP of Clinical Affairs for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation speak. He played this video, which of course, drew tears from everyone in the room. My own tears came from gratefulness for the people who have been helped with these new medications, and also sadness, because those pills aren't available for Azer yet. I feel like we've been told he will have them soon, for many years, but it wasn't until this meeting that I knew, it will be very soon.
This is an extremely costly endeavor for the CF Foundation, and they will continue to need money to fund further research for mutations like Azer's, and for new medications that will continue to treat the symptoms of CF.
Great Strides is the largest fundraiser the CF Foundation holds annually. As a family, we stride every year, and raise money so that we can soon, have these life saving medications. Will you join us in raising money and lacing up for a cure?
