Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
We chose to donate to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation this winter because of the first-hand experience our owner, Jordin, has had with the disease. Jordin's has a close family friend whose mother has CF. Jordin spent a significant amount of her childhood with the family; sharing weekends, vacations, and milestone events. All along, witnessing the challenges faced by a CF warrior. Her friend’s mother faces taking nearly 30 pills a day and administering her invasive lung treatments for over an hour each day. Jordin’s focus on CF is the result of witnessing the bravery and grace of this individual and her ability to transcend the disease and be a mother, wife, mentor, and friend.
We are asking you to help those diagnosed with the chronic disease by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs. Making a donation is easy and secure! We are donating all of the proceeds from all of the digital items in our shop purchased between December 13th-25th to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! If you are not particularly interested in our digital art prints, or bridal shower games, we have created 3 CF prints with different donation amounts. This way you can donate the amount that makes most sense to you + your family.
