All proceeds raised at this GREAT STRIDES Walk will go to help find a cure for CF, which is a fatal disease that clogs the lungs and can impact the digestive system, causing life-threatening infections and premature death. More than 10 million Americans are unknowing carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene. To stay alive, many survivors swallow up to 40 pills a day and spend hours each day clearing their lungs with intense breathing treatments.
