(If you are from Brazil you have to donate here)

Hello my name is Florent and i am 5 years old.

I live in Sao Paulo, Brazil and i love life! I do Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, running and Video games.

2 months ago i couldn’t breath.

My dad drove me to the hospital and we found out that i have cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. The flow of salt and water into and out of the cells is poor. The body produces thick and sticky mucus that can clog the lungs and obstruct the pancreas leading to irreversible damages: destroying pancreas, diabetes, heart and liver disease, lungs infections that would reduce my life expectancy to 30 years…

This disease has actually no cure.

But there are new drugs called modulators.

These drugs allows salt and water flow in and out of the cells, so the body produces normal mucus and lungs and pancreas are not clogged.

Unfortunately these drugs are very expensive and the government doesn’t pay for it.

If you wanna help, my super dad would fly and buy these drugs.

These drugs would give me enough time to wait for the cure.

And will stop the permanent damages to my little body, keeping me healthy.

I love life and I know I will have a very long and happy life with your help.

Donations will be spent to buy the drugs and the travel expenses, but also supplements, vitamins, nebulizers, physiotherapy, and all medical care needed. The ammount of this campaign is for one year care but Florent will need lifetime treatment so the campaign will remain until the cure is found!

This campaign is the English version, there are also Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and Japanese versions in this platform.
