Amazing progress

July 30, 2009 at 6:59 pm

I love this man’s story. His name is Mark and he is a 36 year-old marathon runner.

He also has CF.

Mark’s story gives me hope. It is amazing the progress that has been made finding treatments for this disease. In one generation life expectancy has gone from around 5 years to over 30 years.

That’s truly amazing progress. But it’s not enough. Not when life expectancy for the general population is twice as long.

Research supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is continuing to make advances. Your participation in the Unleash Your Story event can help them do more. Together we can make a difference!
