THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Relatives-

This year I have decided to combine two of my passions into one fundraising effort. I call it "Cure a Disease, Build a Garden". I will continue my efforts to raise money to fund research into a cure for Cystic Fibrosis while at the same time raise awareness and funds for the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. To achieve this, Tricia and I have decided to give one dollar to the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden for each dollar you donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through my fundraising campaign. I will again be running the Pittsburgh Marathon (26.2 miles) as part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Pittsburgh Marathon Run to Cure CF Training Team. Won't you please help us with these two very worthwhile causes? Thanks so much!

John

Help Us Find a Cure.

Our Run to Cure CF team in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people are still cut far too short. Won’t you join us in continuing the search for a cure? Accept the challenge today and help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis by  making a donation to one of our dedicated team members!

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!

What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

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.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure. Thanks to the dedication and financial backing of our supporters — patients, families and friends, clinicians, researchers, volunteers, individual donors, corporations and staff, we are making a difference.
