For my immensely strong friend Kristy, who conquers each day with CF: “Battling cystic fibrosis has been a long journey of twists and turns. There is something especially terrifying about being out of control of your own body, and watching and feeling your body change in ways that you try so hard to stop. But as scary as it has been, it has also been a blessing in disguise, in that it has taught me to value the little things. It made me grateful for the average everyday things that most people take for granted. To be alive is enough! In 2012, the cystic fibrosis community saw its first miracle with the first drug to target the disease’s genetics and underlying cause. Since then, fundraising has led to THREE more similar drugs. 2019 was the most profound of all, with 90% of people with CF now able to take a genetic modulator. This is all thanks to 30 years worth of research backed by private fundraising.” Twenty percent of the proceeds of Kristy’s Roses will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure for incredible people like Kristy.
