THE STORY:

Once again, I am training for a full marathon after a five year hiatus from running on a consistent basis.  You may ask, why would she do this again?  Well, last year I joined a running club and bumped into the running coach that I trained with for my first marathon.  She is now the coach for the Run to Cure Cystic Fibrosis team.  This sparked my interest for personal reasons. While going through some medical treatments over the past few years, I learned that I carried the gene for Cystic Fibrosis.  This seemed to be a sign that I should join this team and help in any way that I could to raise money to Find A Cure!

Please support me in my quest to raise money and awareness for CF. THANK YOU for visiting my page and for your support! Help Us Find a Cure and add tomorrows to the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis by making a donation.

We've made incredible progress in the fight against cystic fibrosis, but we still need to strive to cross that finish line and find a cure!

Thank you so much!!

             What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

--Dana 

 

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections, and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.

Statistics

About 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year.
More than 70% of patients are diagnosed by age two.
More than 45% of the CF patient population is age 18 or older.
The predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the late 30s.
