Make a Difference
Hayden Siler might look like your average third grader — the 8-year-old likes to dance and loves being a big sister. Deep in her heart, though, Hayden is an artist. For nearly two years, Hayden, who has Cystic Fibrosis, has created one-of-a-kind abstract paintings, which she sells at auctions and art shows to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “I get really excited when people buy my paintings. Sometimes I jump up and down,” Hayden said. “When people buy the paintings, I know they are helping me and kids like me.”
To date, she has sold 17 works and has raised more than $6,500 to help support the search for a cure.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for CF. The Foundation funds lifesaving research and works to provide access to quality, specialized care and effective treatments for people with CF. Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. Through its efforts, the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years, and research to find a cure is more promising than ever before.
