May is CF Awareness Month

Never take a simple breath for granted!

Cystic Fibrosis affects about 30,000 in the US and about 70,000 world wide. It is a genetic disease affecting the lungs and the digestive system. It creates a thick sticky mucus which builds up in our bodies. The sticky mucus causes lung infections and eventually causes decreased lung capacity. The average life expectancy is about 37 now, thanks to all the medical advancements made available to us by the CF Foundation. There still is no cure! We are closer now than ever, so we need to keep the momentum up and fundraise like crazy!! Great things are happening!!
