Did you know that there are about 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis (CF) diagnosed each year?
This season, Andrew Core Insurance and Financial Services Agency will be supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by donating $10 in your name to raise funds for research and care.
CF is a rare, genetic disease that progressively limits the ability to breathe and tragically shortens lives. In the 1950s, children with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of advances in research and care made possible by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the median predicted age of survival is about 40.
The CF Foundation is a proven leader in the field of rare disease research, which has historically been underfunded by the government and pharmaceutical industry. The Foundation is recognized globally for its unprecedented and tenacious efforts in combatting this rare disease. Nearly every approved CF drug available today was made possible by the Foundation – including therapies that treat the underlying cause of the disease
“My son Liam was diagnosed with CF before he was born. Many of you might recall some of the challenges my family has faced. Luckily, we have been fortunate enough to receive outstanding care for Liam, but with greater funding there is so much more the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation can do to help give Liam the best life possible!” says Andrew Core, Agency Owner.
The CFF Oregon Chapter is hosting their annual Great Strides walk in Eugene to raise funds for research and care, and Andrew Core Insurance is participating!
With a $10 donation in your name, we can support the mission of CFF and help people like Liam who are living with CF.
