THE STORY:

Help Us Find a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis!

I'm choosing to run in the Pittsburgh Marathon so that I can continue to bring awareness to CF, and to be a role model for my little brother, Terry, who inspires me every day.

Each hospital visit reminds our family of how strong Terry is and how far he has come while dealing with this disease. As he's gotten older he asks questions like "Why is something always wrong with me? Why am I always sick?" and although we don't have a good enough answer for him, we know God had a plan when he blessed us with Terry. Cystic Fibrosis made me realize heroes come in all shapes and sizes. My hero is a 76 lb, 11 year old little boy.

Please consider donating even the smallest amount to help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with CF.

With thanks and appreciation,

Selina & the Duffy clan

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.
