What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That’s why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner – rather than later.

Who is Colette?

Team Colette - Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis!

Colette Lucia Hanna was born on June 22, 2010. In September 2010 she was diagnosed with the genetic disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Although only ten months old, she has a spirit and determination like none we’ve ever seen. Please join her father, Jeffrey; big sister, Isis; and her loving mommy, Mandy - as they take steps toward finding a cure. They would love for you to take that step with them by either joining them in the Great Strides 2011 Akron walk, or by making a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
