We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the overwhelming amount of support we have received over the years. Your continued generosity in the fight against cystic fibrosis has been remarkable and your commitment to finding a cure has been absolutely astonishing. While we would love to be back together again celebrating at Shamrockin’ for a Cure as we have done in the years prior to COVID, we unfortunately had to make the extremely difficult decision to cancel the event for 2023.
Even without the Shamrockin’ for a Cure we know and love, you can still make a donation and continue supporting the O'Connells in their fight to kick CF's butt!
Thanks to your past support, the foundation has reached some incredible milestones. Recently, it was announced that the CF community is growing. Because people with cystic fibrosis are living longer, there are nearly 40,000 people with CF (up from 30,000) in the United States. For children born between 2016 and 2020, the median predicted survival age reached 50 years for the first time. There were also 23.2% fewer pulmonary exacerbations in adults with CF compared to the previous year. Your donations are making a direct difference in the lives of those affected by cystic fibrosis and we can’t thank you enough
