National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

May is National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. CF causes a sticky, thick mucus to line the lungs, small intestines, sweat glands and pancreas. This results in the deterioration of lung tissue making it difficult to breathe. It also prevents necessary nutrient absorption in the small intestine and blocks pancreatic ducts from releasing digestive enzymes. 1 in every 23 Americans are symptomless carriers of the CF gene.

Crystal Allure Creations is a proud supporter of the Lungs for Life.

LFL provides assistance and services to those living with cystic fibrosis and their families. Crystal Allure made significant strides in raising awareness of this hereditary disease since 2004 with the sales from our Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Bracelets. For every bracelet sold a portion of the proceeds gets donated to Lungs for Life.

As one who was personally affected with cystic fibrosis in my family I know all to well the struggles one faces daily with trying to live life and manage their health. My brother and muse passed away in 1998 after fighting cystic fibrosis for 33 years. It was after seeing his daily struggles that I founded and continue to support the Lungs for Life.

Be a part of making a difference in the life of someone with cystic fibrosis with your purchase of any cystic fibrosis awareness product. Remember, a portion of the proceeds will be donated directly to LFL.

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
