Take It Away is a registered non-profit committed to do it's part to support the path to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. 100% of proceeds raised by our organization will go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our passion for this cause is inspired by our love for two special little girls who are affected by this chronic and progressive disease.
The story behind Take It Away starts with one little girl who was born with a chronic, progressive and incurable disease called cystic fibrosis. Over time, the weight of this disease and the burden of handfuls of pills and twice-daily lung treatments began to build. When she was 4 years old, she begged her parents to “take it away!” Knowing the daily impact this disease would continue to have on her life, it’s incurable nature, and the way it would damage her body over time, they knew they could no longer sit back and just wait for might come in the world of medicine. They had to do more.
They began participating in local fundraisers for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation but it wasn’t long before their fight for a cure grew even stronger. Soon after their second daughter was born, they received the devastating news that she also had CF.
It is from this place of hurt that a new hope and vision was ignited. Through much prayer, consideration, and the commitment of others, the non-profit organization, Take It Away, was formed. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by cystic fibrosis by raising awareness, rallying community involvement, and monetarily supporting the research aimed at finding a cure for CF, not only for these two sisters but for all of those who struggle with this life-threatening condition.
By supporting our cause, you are helping far more than just the two little girls who inspired our organization. Below are the faces of other CF Fighters who also battle the daily burden of this disease. These are the faces of resilient young people who live each day to the fullest despite CF. But these are also the faces of souls who are anxiously awaiting a cure for the disease that threatens their future. Your support of our Take It Away does more than just fund research, it also helps provide these beautiful lives with more hope for a life free of cystic fibrosis. In all that they battle every single day to stay healthy, there is comfort in knowing that others are working tirelessly on their behalf to find a cure. We will NOT stop fighting and we will NOT stop supporting CF research until we see the day that CF does not exist anymore!
