cystic fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic, life-threatening lung and digestive disease with NO CURE. 30,000 Americans and 70,000 people worldwide are going through this struggle every day. In 2017 it was announced the average life expectancy for person born with CF is now 47 years old, but for Kelsi it was just 26. This is WAY too short, but an improvement from a few decades ago when children did not make it to their teen years.

 

Thanks to research and new drugs/therapies made possible by funding from the CF Foundation, patients can live longer and fuller lives as we get closer to a CURE.

 

In addition to raising awareness for CF while I complete The Un-Bucket List, I also want to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Currently my goal is to raise $100,000 and when I do, I will complete Kelsi's #1 list item: SKYDIVING!!! If you would like to make a donation, you can do so here. Thank you!
