Ms. Truax will lead local volunteers in organizing a Bike- A-Thorn in Shepherdstown to raise funds to support research and care programs for children affected by lung-damaging diseases like Cystic Fibrosis, severe asthma chronic bron- chitis, and bronchiectasis. The Bike-A-Than campaign will be held during the month of April or May. If you are asked to sponsor a rider or work with your local chairman, we hope you will be as generous as possible. . Approximately one of every 1,500 babies is born with Cystic Fibrosis, which is still incurable. C-F is inherited when both parents carry the recessive gene for C-F. It is believed that one in twenty persons, or a total of ten million Americans, is a symp- tomless carrier of this gene. Current research funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is seeking a practical test to identify these carriers, as well as a cure for C-F and better methods of treatment for all lung-damaging diseases.
