The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation got a special gift Thursday from the Battle Against Cystic Fibrosis (BACF) supporters in Parkersburg.

Ruth Hans and Beth Denham from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation were on hand to accept a $40,000 donation.

The money will help fund research for a cure to the genetic disorder.

17-year-old, Wyatt Smith, was among the people in attendance who has CF.

He's pleased to have an organization like the BACF to help those in need.

"I think it means a lot to me considering I have Cystic Fibrosis and it means the world to me because there's still people out in the world like them that care for kids who have C-F and everybody and all their parents," says Smith.

The BACF will be hosting a basketball game in April.
