In 2009 Riley Kobler was born to our winemaker Brian Kobler and his wife Jennifer. Riley was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the US.
In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s.
Each year the Kobler family meets with congressional representatives to help propel legislation that will help individuals with CF. This work not only aids CF also helps provide aid for many other rare diseases.
Today Riley is a healthy active three year old. The Koblers have been fortunate enough to have the time and resources to keep this degenerative disease at bay. However, not all families do. Donating time and money to cystic fibrosis will help families all over the country treat this devastating disease. Please contact your local Cystic Fibrosis chapter by visiting their website at cff.org.
