Your Vote Can Help Babies with Cystic Fibrosis
You can help the CF Foundation win $250,000 for CF research. The CFF is participating in the Pepsi Refresh Project. Each month Pepsi awards over $1 million is grants to worthy causes, chosen by votes. The CFF is competing for a $250,000 grant to fund a clinical study about the effects of hypertonic saline treatments on infants. Hypertonic saline, an inhaled saltwater treatment that reduced lung infections and hospitalizations for adults and children with CF. Now we need to study this treatment for newborn use. Hypertonic saline, if proven effective in this research study, would given infants with CF a better chance at a long, happy and healthier life.
I have posted a button on my blog with a link to vote to support this grant. You can vote once a day though the end of September, so vote today and vote often. Please feel free to pass the word on.
