Purpose: We are hosting the 9th annual “Scrapping for a Cure” crop to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Several of us are directly affected by CF. Director, Rachael McGuire, has a daughter named Kaitlyn who was diagnosed with CF when she was 18 months old.Kaitlyn fights her daily battle with CF while Rachael’s family and friends are hoping for a cure.  Tara Smith, Teri Johnson, & Anna Steinke are Kaitlyn’s aunts. Co-event chairman, Jill Worley, lost her brother to CF in 1960 when little was known about the disease. With all this time that has passed, much more is known about the disease, but there still is NO cure for CF. Funding is needed to continue the search for a cure!

Watch Kaitlyn’s journey here

   Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that prevents children’s lungs and other internal organs from working properly. Each day consists of   medicines, vitamins, chest physiotherapy, and breathing treatments. The average life expectancy today is 40 years old. CF claims hundreds 
of lives each year, and we want to put an end to this devastating disease. Through our annual ‘Scrapping for a Cure’, we can help the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation raise money to find a cure for these young children. You can find out more about CF by visiting www.cff.org.
