Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Fundraiser
June 1- June 20
We’re pleased to host a charity drive for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Utah. With over 30 million American’s battling CF, a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system.—we hope to help local children breathe a little easier. All donations made will help Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Utah.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
In people with CF, a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick mucus that:
- Clogs the lungs, leading to life threatening infections
- Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down nutrients.
In the 1950’s, few people with CF lived in their 30’s. Now, with the help of modern medicine and research, people with CF are living into their 30’s, 40’s and beyond.
Donate to Adding Tomorrows
Be sure to tell your cashier that you’d like to donate to help local kids with CF live longer, fuller lives.
