My little KittyBear is growing so fast. She has been doing quite well with CF and that is all thanks to the research that has been done. Every day she gets a dose of albuterol, followed by saline through the nebulizer, and then chest physical therapy (it use to be pow pow, but now she wears a vest). This process is done twice a day. Gabby just started taking a gene therapy medication. This helps her sodium chloride channel work more efficiently. On a daily basis she gets her chest therapy twice a day, an enzyme before every meal and snack, a daily vitamin, and an inhaled medication to help break down the sticky substance that is left behind by white blood cells in her lungs. A new medication is currently in the phase 3 process of research. This medication will be used in conjunction with ivacaftor (the gene therapy that Gabby is already taking). This new med will move the defective gene to its proper place in the airway cell. To learn more look up tezacaftor. All of these medications and chest therapies were discovered with the research that the CF foundation has conducted. Please join us AND Ms. KittyBear this May as we walk to add tomorrows to everyone's life.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
