Cystic Fibrosis

Nordhagen and Daughters will donate $10 of every inspection fee (ordered and filled out online) to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in hopes of finding a cure for our little Levi and all who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis.

leviwebsitepicLevi is our hero! He is Jason and Kellie’s oldest son as well as Cal Nordhagen’s grandson and he has Cystic Fibrosis. He has gone through so much in just his 10 years of life but what a trooper this brave boy is! Although his everyday life consists of 1 hr and 45 minutes of chest therapy and nebulizer treatments, over 25 pills and 12 different medications he still finds time to do the things he loves, playing basketball, football, soccer, surfing, skateboarding and inventing. We are incredibly thankful the Lord has sustained his health for the last 8 years and for how well he has been doing, however CF is still taking a toll on his body internally and we are doing all we can to keep him active and keep him healthy because CF can be devastating. We are thankful for each and every day with our son and pray we have many many more years with him. We truly are so close to a cure and would love it if you would join us one day in saying you played a part in curing CF!! We are so thankful for our family and friends who have supported us in this journey so far but our work is not over and we will not stop until everyone with CF is cured!! Please also keep Levi and those with CF in your prayers!!

familywebsitepicReal progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease so this is why we at Nordhagen and Daughters want to help.

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
