Cystic FibrosisCystic Fibrosis is a truly insidious disease that robs many of living a full, healthy life. It is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. With members of the MC Family personally impacted, supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is near and dear to our organizations heart.
CF is a complex disease and the types of severity of symptoms can differ widely from person to person. A child previously diagnosed with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Today thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, many are living long enough to realize their dreams of attending college, pursuing careers, getting married and having children.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is responsible for advancing nearly all the science and treatments developed to treat CF since inception in 1955. MC Companies is devoted to the organization and supports many annual events including the Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides walks in Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. MC continues to raise funds and awareness through employee driven fundraisers, paid time-off donations, and payroll contributions. We hope you will join us in the life or death battle against Cystic Fibrosis.
