Cystic Fibrosis Bracelets
WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and
digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United
States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product
cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body
break down and absorb food.
SHOULD WE HELP?
Currently, there is no cure for CF. When
you buy a bracelet, you will be donating to the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation. Donating can give scientist money for further research to
find the cure. Finding the cure for CF is like giving someone a second
chance; a second chance at living a normal life.
a minimum of $3.00 per
bracelet, we can be one step closer to the cure! Our goal
is to raise at least $1,800.00!
