The Call for Unity: Together We Can Achieve More
In recognition of his commitment to community well-being and philanthropy, Oscar De La Rosa has partnered with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for a special fundraising effort. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective Cystic Fibrosis (CF gene). Advances in research and care have improved the prognosis for those with CF, but continued support is essential to sustain this life-saving work.
Understanding Cystic Fibrosis: A Silent Battle
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder characterized by the production of thick and sticky mucus, which clogs the airways and digestive passages. This condition affects the lungs, making it difficult for individuals with CF to breathe and increasing the risk of respiratory infections. Additionally, CF impacts the digestive system, impairing the body’s ability to absorb vital nutrients. It’s a challenging and often debilitating disease that demands ongoing care and research breakthroughs.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation: Pioneers in Progress
Founded in 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been at the forefront of the fight against CF. With a mission to cure cystic fibrosis and provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives, the foundation has made significant strides in research, treatment, and advocacy. Their commitment to improving the lives of those with CF is unwavering, and they’ve played a pivotal role in advancing scientific discoveries and innovative therapies.
