BLACKFOOT â€” Singer Christina Christensen, an â€śAmericaâ€™s Got Talentâ€ť
finalist, was in Blackfoot Tuesday to raise funds for and promote awareness of cystic fibrosis (CF).
â€śCF is a disease where mucus builds up in the lungs and/or pancreas,â€ť
said Christina. â€śEach day treatments can take from 10 to 45 minutes. There are multiple pills and multiple medical treatments.â€ť
Christina and her three sisters all have CF.
â€śPeople have asked why our parents had any more children after our first sister was diagnosed with CF,â€ť she said.
