    Three Louisville families - the Klausings, Foushees and Sweeneys - each have children, ranging from 11 months to 8 years old, with cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system with an estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States currently diagnosed. The Klausings, whose 8-year-old son Luke suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, have been highly involved with cystic fibrosis research throughout Luke's whole life. He was diagnosed when he was five days old. 

    These three families have come together with Cure CF Inc., a Louisville non-profit, for an event to raise funds for a cure and celebrate the uniqueness of Louisville's culinary and brewing scenes. CRAFT 2015, presented by Anthem, will take place October 10 from 7-11 p.m. at the 2nd Street Bridge Streetscape in downtown Louisville.
