CF Awareness Month Day 30 - Raising Awareness
I hope you've found this month's blog posts informative and enlightening about cystic fibrosis and what it's like to live with the disease. Raising awareness of this disease and what it does to the people who live with it is the stepping stone to fundraising, which is the stepping stone to finding a cure! Please feel free to post links about CF anytime on your social media - whether it's an inspirational video, a blog, a news article, etc. All of this raises awareness of CF in the general public. The next step is to join a fundraiser - Great Strides or a CF Climb are two very popular events that happen throughout the country each year. Get involved when you can to spread awareness and raise those cure-seeking funds!
Also, if you have CF, try not to be afraid to talk about it to other people! We are the best source of raising awareness, because we can provide a "face" to this disease that people can relate to on a personal level. Blogging, vlogging, posting, and even just educating people when they have questions are all fantastic ways for us to raise awareness about this aspect of our lives. 😊
