Meet Our Team‎ > ‎

Kaitlyn

Meet Kaitlyn McGuire, our personal CFer. Kaitlyn was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was 18 months old, which followed with her first of many hospitalizations. In the beginning, we did not understand the battle facing us. We did not understand the questions that will come and may never have answers. Now, at age 12, she is still fighting this battle every day. She faces hospitalizations every 2-3 months and takes medications and treatments daily, but her hope never dims. She has a strong support team made up of her parents, her brothers, dozens of aunts/uncles/cousins, and many friends she has met along the way. 


Kaitlyn's dream is finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
