THE STORY:

My older sister and best friend Nicole was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of two. Thanks to her strength and medical advances she will be turning 32 years old this year! The foundation has been a huge help with their continued funding for research that has helped countless CF patients.

This year I am fundraising to run 26.2 miles in the hills of Pittsburgh. The training has been brutal and sometimes painful but I'm inspired by Nicole and many like her that fight so hard everyday. 

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.
