July 17, 2013

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