There are over 70,000 adults worldwide who have CF. I have no doubt that someday we will find a cure for this disease and many other diseases that exist. Just look at what we already accomplished. We have conquered smallpox, malaria, diphtheria and typhoid fever. Anything is possible through sheer will and determination. Jessie Owens once said, “We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” Thank you all for helping to get us closer to the fulfillment of that dream – a cure for cystic fibrosis. I am proud to be associated with all of you.
