Shearer Family Story

Will and Ann Shearer have three children, Brown (13), Helen (10) and Hayes (7). Both Helen and Hayes have CF. To this family, what it means to have CF is to get up every day and fight. The battle starts all over each morning. There are no vacations with CF. Helen and Hayes do up to an hour of respiratory therapy every morning and every night. They have to be very careful to minimize exposure to germs and harmful bacteria. They each take between 15-20 pills a day. And, when needed, they use oral, IV and inhaled antibiotics. What it means to have CF is to bear a weight way beyond the normal stresses and pressures of life. BUT, what it also means to have CF is TO HAVE HOPE! Hope in children like Helen and Hayes who are heroes. They are the definition of overcomers. Hope in community that they go not alone but have help from supporters like you to help in their fight. Hope in the amazing progress delivered and promise of therapies to come soon in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s drug pipeline. What it means to have CF is to be a part of the generation who fought and found a cure so these amazing children and adults can spend their lives and use their strength, determination and hope to be heroes in other battles around the world. Thank you for giving us HOPE and fighting with us!



About Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. today. A defective gene causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs airways and leads to lung infections, obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. For a child or adult with CF, the battle is fought daily with breathing treatments, respiratory therapy, and endless medications.

About The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. CFF funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.

CFF is a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle.  The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.  To learn more about CF or the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
