Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that ravages the lungs and digestive system. Today there is no cure, but we at the Indiana Chapter are determined to change that.
The CFF relies on you, our Partner in Progress, to provide the vital resources necessary to carry out our mission: to cure and control cystic fibrosis. Only with your support are we able to advance new treatments from the test tube to the patients who need them, make sure people with CF get the best medical care possible to stay healthy, and to pursue every opportunity for promising research that can lead us to a cure.
As we look to our 2017 goal, the need to increase medical funding is more important than ever. Did you know that just a few years ago, in 2012, we invested $96 million dollars into medical research? Those funds have brought us a long way, and we're not going to stop until we have the fix for all those with cf. In 2014, we've committed to $150 million. Won't you please help us get there? We are pleased to introduce you to our adorable 2014 Partner in Progress Ambassador.
Nathan is your typical 4 year old boy, full of energy! He likes going to the park, blowing bubbles, swimming, and playing with Lego's. He loves being outside, going exploring, making snowmen, having snowball fights, and riding his bike. He enjoys going to preschool, meeting new people, and going new places. Nathan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was 7 days old. Nathan is a tough guy that doesn't mind a throat culture, PFT or therapy. He started swallowing pills when he was two and a half. Nathan always has a smile on his face and loves handing out hugs and kisses! Look for Nathan's sweet face on all of our 2014 Annual Fund communication.
